Man who tried to assassinate Ronald Reagan set for unconditional release

The man who tried to assassinate Ronald Reagan 40 years ago will secure his “unconditional release” in 2022 if he remains mentally stable, a judge has said.

John Hinckley Jr was 25 when he shot and wounded the 40th US president outside a Washington hotel in 1981 – an incident which left Mr Reagan’s press secretary James Brady paralysed.
