Judge grants Reagan assailant right to visit parents overnight

WASHINGTON A federal judge today loosened the restrictions on John W. Hinckley Jr., allowing the hospitalized presidential assailant to spend seven overnight visits with his parents in Williamsburg, Va.

Hinckley, who shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981, had been permitted to leave St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington for outings around the nation s capital. He wanted to make longer trips and travel outside the area to his parents community in southeastern Virginia.

U.S. District Judge Paul L. Friedman ruled Hinckley could be allowed three, three-night visits and another four, four-night visits.

He is not permitted to leave one or both parents supervision at any time during the course of the conditional release except when the hospital deems it necessary, Friedman ruled.
