Hinckley has shown no signs that indicate he is a danger to society, a court ruled in July, and he will be live at his mother's home in Williamsburg, Va.

Hinckley, now 61, will be required to volunteer and work at least three days a week, see a therapist twice a month for a minimum of six months, and attend group therapy sessions once a week.

A set of restrictions will also apply to Hinckley's daily activities and leisure time. The report notes that he will not be able to search the web for his crimes or set up social media accounts without express permission. Additionally, Hinckley is not allowed to consume alcohol, use illegal narcotics or talk to the press.

He will also be doing musical therapy after developing an interest in music and art.

Hinckley's lawyer, Barry Levine, said his client will be a “citizen about whom we can all be proud.”
 
After shooting and injuring Reagan and three others, Hinckley was found not guilty by reason of insanity and was sentenced to remain under psychiatric care.
 
It was believed that Hinckley had an obsession with the actress Jodie Foster, who starred in the movie "Taxi Driver." Hinckley then proceeded to re-enact a scene from the film in which the main character attempts to assassinate a senator who is running for president.
