Feds Say Reagan Shooter John Hinckley Is Womanizing Narcissist

Would-be presidential assassin John Hinckley is a womanizing narcissist who juggles sexual relationships and "believes himself entitled to a life of leisure," according to federal prosecutors.

The prosecutors oppose the 53-year-old's bid for more time away from a Washington, D.C., psychiatric hospital, and wrote up their reasoning in a June 4 motion obtained by The Smoking Gun.

Hinckley maintains "fondling privileges" with one paramour, "rekindled" a relationship with a former girlfriend, has been "maintaining near simultaneous sexual relationships" with two women and "met a fourth woman" last year, according to the motion.

Hinckley, who shot and wounded President Reagan in 1981, has been committed to St. Elizabeth's Hospital since he was found not guilty by reason of insanity. He said he shot Reagan to impress actress Jodie Foster.

He has been allowed visits to his family home in Virginia but wants to extend those visits, as well as get a driver's license and begin volunteering or working in the community, all under the supervision of his doctors.

But federal prosecutors argue that he needs to address "his issues" surrounding these relationships, "in order to preclude the danger that he might again try to impress a woman through violence," The Smoking Gun reported.
