United States v. Hinckley

United States District Court, District of Columbia

February 26, 2014

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
v.
JOHN W. HINCKLEY, JR

ORDER

PAUL L. FRIEDMAN, District Judge.

For the reasons stated in the Opinion issued on December 20, 2013, it is hereby,

ORDERED that the Court will permit the following:

1. Mr. Hinckley will be allowed conditional releases of 17 days each month to his mother's home outside the metropolitan Washington D.C. area with the purpose of acclimating him to his mother's community and permitting him to engage in activities discussed in the December 20, 2013 Opinion. The success of each visit will be thoroughly assessed by the Hospital before a subsequent visit is permitted. If Mr. Hinckley successfully completes eight 17-day visits, the court would consider a further (e) letter from the Hospital.
2. Mr. Hinckley will be permitted to drive unaccompanied while in Williamsburg as long as he is using the vehicle to travel to destinations where people will be expecting him, such as to mental health treatment appointments, approved volunteer and employment activities, as well as to any specific social or educational activities arranged by him and Mr. Weiss.
3. During each day of the 17-day visits, Mr. Hinckley will be permitted up to six unsupervised outings lasting up to 4 hours each outside his mother's housing subdivision, for social, recreational, shopping, and dining activities, or for the purpose of securing other related activities, between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
4. During these unaccompanied outings, Mr. Hinckley will avoid traveling to government centers in Richmond or to areas where the President or members of Congress may be visiting.
5. Mr. Hinckley will be allowed to volunteer at Eastern State Hospital for up to five days a week, depending on the availability of suitable work activities and will be allowed to engage in other work with hospital approval.
6. The Hospital agrees to notify the Court and counsel for the parties if Mr. Hinckley engages in new volunteer activities or employment, with a description of the duties and duty hours.
7. Mr. Hinckley will be allowed two 120 minute unaccompanied walks, daily within his mother's subdivision between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. standard time and 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daylight savings time.
8. The Court will continue to require detailed itineraries to be provided by the Hospital in advance for at least the first four 17-day visits. Should these itineraries (prepared by Mr. Hinckley, Mr. Hyde, and Mr. Weiss) contain the kinds of social and other interactive activities that show progress, the Court will consider a motion from the Hospital or Mr. Hinckley to modify the requirement of detailed itineraries, submitted, under seal, to the Court and to counsel for the parties.
9. Mr. Hinckley will continue to complete a daily log of his activities while in Williamsburg.
10. Mr. Hinckley may be driven between Washington, D.C. and Williamsburg by a professional driver without his mother or siblings in the vehicle.
