WASHINGTON (AP) - A lawyer for John Hinckley Jr., the man who shot President Ronald Reagan and then-press secretary James Brady in 1981, says he is no longer a danger and should be allowed to live full time outside a Washington mental hospital.

Hinckley was 25 when a jury found him not guilty by reason of insanity in the assassination attempt. He has lived at St. Elizabeths, a Washington mental hospital, ever since. But he's 60 years old now and spends 17 days a month at his mother's home in Virginia.

His attorney Barry Levine told a federal judge in Washington on Wednesday that Hinckley should live fulltime on the outside, but a prosecutor opposed the plan, saying it doesn't include enough restrictions.
