The man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan 30 years ago will get to spend more time with his mother.

John Hinckley was found not guilty by reason of insanity and has been living at St. Elizabeths Hospital in southeast D.C. ever since.

On Wednesday, a U.S. District Court judge approved additional release time for Hinckley.  It means he will have extra visits to his mother’s home in Virginia.

The number and terms of the visits will determined at a court hearing in October.

Hinckley shot and wounded Reagan March 30, 1981, as the president left a speaking engagement at the Washington Hilton Hotel in northwest D.C. just 69 days into Reagan’s presidency.
