A psychologist says weekend visits to his parents' Virginia home would be therapeutic for the man who shot President Reagan.

Hospital psychologist Paul Montalbano testified today in federal court that there is a low risk that John Hinckley would be a danger to himself or others.

Hinckley's parents live three hours away from the mental hospital where he's spent more than two decades.

Montalbano says Hinckley no longer suffers from depression and the delusional behavior that led him to be obsessed with actress Jodie Foster and attempt to assassinate a president.

In the past year and a half, Hinckley has been allowed to visit the newly opened section of the Air and Space Museum in Virginia and an amusement park.
