Paul Pelosi’s Attacker David DePape Convicted on Multiple State Charges

Paul Pelosi’s attacker David DePape has been found guilty of kidnapping, burglary, and other state charges, according to reports.

DePape was convicted over the 2022 assault of Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s husband in a verdict that concluded days of jury deliberation, Fox News reported.

On a late October night in 2022, as the midterm elections approached, DePape entered the San Francisco residence of the Pelosis.

This attack occurred while Nancy Pelosi was in Washington, D.C.

DePape, armed with a hammer, confronted Paul Pelosi.

During this confrontation, DePape inflicted severe injuries on Paul Pelosi using the hammer.

The injuries were so critical that they required extensive surgical intervention.

Paul Pelosi reportedly required the surgical insertion of plates and screws to mend a skull fracture, as well as treatment for other injuries to his right arm and hand.

The state case against DePape concluded with a jury verdict on a Friday.

The verdict came after deliberations that began the preceding Tuesday.

He was convicted on multiple serious charges, including kidnapping, false imprisonment, threatening a public official, and burglary.

Earlier, DePape had faced a federal trial where he was acquitted of attempted murder, elder abuse, and assault with a deadly weapon due to concerns over double jeopardy.

However, for the federal charges related to the same attack, he was sentenced in May to 30 years in prison.

In the months leading up to the attack, DePape had isolated himself.

During the trial, he revealed he told the court that he planned to take Nancy Pelosi hostage.

He reportedly said he wanted to coerce her into confessing Democrat lies about Russian interference in the 2016 election.

At one point during the trial, DePape expressed regret for his actions, particularly the harm inflicted on Paul Pelosi.

He admitted to feeling “horrible for hurting Mr. Pelosi.”

DePape also lamented his decision to not leave the premises upon discovering that Nancy Pelosi was not home.

Following the conviction, a spokesperson for the congresswoman stated that the Pelosi family remains in awe of Paul Pelosi’s bravery, both during the attack and throughout his testimony at the trial.

“For nearly 20 grueling months, Mr. Pelosi has demonstrated extraordinary courage and fortitude every day of his recovery,” the spokesperson continued.

Additionally, the spokesperson mentioned that the Pelosi family would refrain from further substantive comments until after the sentencing is completed.

“I should have gone home when I found out Nancy Pelosi wasn’t there,” DePape said, reflecting on his actions during the proceedings.

His acknowledgment of regret and the impact of his actions on the Pelosi family added a personal dimension to the proceedings.

The conviction of David DePape marks a significant legal resolution to an incident that caught national attention, given its timing and political undertones.

The case has also highlighted issues surrounding security for public officials and the influence of misinformation.
