A judge in DC hearing more testimony today on behalf of the man who shot president Ronald Reagan back in 1981.
John Hinckley jr.'s remained in a mental hospital for some thirty years now.
But doctors have recently let him out on short trips.
Now relatives say he deserves even more lead prosecutors argue John Hinckley junior has a deceptive personality.
And needs to stay put.
Trace Gallagher is our West Coast newsroom this afternoon Hinckley is considered in staying insane still right.
Yeah the psychiatrist says that he is still -- say but she also testified today -- that he has a lull level of mental health disease.
I she says that his psychotic disorder and depressive disorder is actually in remission though he still needs his medication right now.
John Hinckley junior spends about ten days a month -- his mother's home in Williamsburg Virginia.
The hospital wants to increase that to seventeen days a month that first -- that -- that goes well.
Up to 26 days a month that eventually.
He would live with his mom full time and of course the prosecutors say they do not want John Hinckley junior to have any more freedom at all show up what what happens -- well something happens to his mom -- rodeo event.
-- and that's the prosecutors keep asking court -- the answer seems to be that nobody knows and and his mother is 85 years old and though she appears to be in pretty good health she's 85 John Hinckley is 56 years old.
-- his sister testified today.
That when his mom -- that he should be able to live alone in an apartment or condominium she lives in Dallas and says that Hinckley cannot live with her because he's too far away from his hospital for one.
And that it would look bad -- he lived in the city were JFK was assassinated.
And only -- short distance away from George W.
