A request by President Reagan's shooter for unsupervised trips away from a mental hospital is before a federal judge. John Hinckley has been confined to a Washington psychiatric hospital since 1982. That's when a federal jury found him not guilty by reason of insanity in the shootings of Reagan and three others.

Hinckley's parents lived in Evergreen, Colorado, at the time of the attack. They now live in the Williamsburg, Virginia, area.

Hinckley wants ten unsupervised visits with his parents as well as five overnight trips. Hinckley's attorney says five doctors have concluded that if released, he won't be a danger to himself or others.
