The last man to shoot an American president now spends most of the year in a house overlooking the 13th hole of a golf course in a gated community.
When John Hinckley Jr. was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the 1981 assassination attempt of President Ronald Reagan, jurors left open the possibility that he would one day live outside a mental institution. For decades he's been receiving treatment at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, D.C., and in 2003 a judge ordered Hinckley be allowed to start testing his freedom outside of the facility. For the past year, Hinckley has spent 17 days a month living with his mother in Williamsburg, Virginia. Hearings set for Wednesday will determine whether that time should be increased. Nearing 60, Hinckley could potentially be granted full-time, year-round "convalescent leave" in the community.
