On this day. 1982: A jury found John Hinckley Jr. not guilty by reason of insanity in the shooting of President Ronald Reagan and three others. Still under court supervision — and watched by the Secret Service — Hinckley, now 58, has been given more freedom by a federal judge: He can spend up to 10 days with his family at a time, and has a driver's license.
