Separate State Charge Gets Pelosi Attacker Combined Life Sentence

Everyone has seen the video of him pummeling Paul Pelosi with an assault hammer.

David DePape only got 30 years in his federal case for assaulting Paul Pelosi with a hammer. The state of California fixed the little oversight with his kidnapping sentence. For that, he’s destined to spend the rest of his life in one prison cell or another.

Pelosi attacker sentenced again

When he gets out of federal prison for attacking Paul Pelosi, scheduled for 30 years from now, David DePape will be moved to a prison in California. One where he’ll serve a separate life sentence. That’s for the aggravated kidnapping of Nancy Pelosi’s husband.

Since she’s their favorite senator, they had to make an example out of him. By the time he gets moved, nobody will remember who she was.

On Friday, June 21, the San Francisco jury found DePape guilty. That’s not surprising because everyone has seen the video of him pummeling Paul Pelosi with an assault hammer. Altogether, DePape had been charged with first-degree burglary, false imprisonment of an elder, threatening a family member of a public official and dissuading a witness.

The only conviction which really matters is the one for “aggravated” kidnapping. Under the guidelines, the judge has no choice. “Life behind bars without the possibility of parole.

Nancy Pelosi wasn’t home at the time of the notorious assault with a deadly hammer, which is why her security team wasn’t paying attention to the security video. Nobody noticed as DePape used his unlicensed hammer to smash a patio door and gain entry. His real target wasn’t home that night. “Where’s Nancy?” he demanded. The controversial new ruling by SCOTUS would have denied him the ability to own a firearm because of his “poor mental state.

The right to possess as many hammers as you want has not been regulated. That means you don’t have to go to a hardware store to buy one. You can buy, sell, or trade them at construction shows or in your basement without going to prison. Everything from ball-peen hammers, great for smashing glass, to a five-pound sledge remains totally unregulated. The standard construction claw assault hammer seems to be the most popular for murder and mayhem. That’s what DePape used on Pelosi.

Plans to appeal

DePape’s public defender Adam Lipson was bummed about the verdict. He had prepared a totally awesome motion to have the most serious charges removed. DePape didn’t mean to actually kidnap Paul Pelosi. The charges for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and elder abuse were also on shaky legal ground, he argued. Unfortunately, the judge wasn’t impressed with his legal scholarship.

Lipson told AP that “he was disappointed with Friday’s verdict and the defendant plans to appeal it.” Some speculate the young public defender hasn’t had a chance to do one of those yet, so he’s anxious to give it a try.

The whole concept of aggravated kidnapping of Paul Pelosi was “vindictive,” Lipson told the press afterward. It “was handed down after the prosecution found out that the attempted murder charge was being dropped.

He confirmed that whether his client likes it or not, “DePape will serve 30 years in federal prison and then be transferred to a California prison where he will spend the rest of his life.

Paul Pelosi barely survived being “hit in the head multiple times with a hammer.” DePape freely admits that Nancy was his only interest. At his trial he testified that Paul “was never his target, and said he was sorry he got hurt.

He was seriously upset with some of Nancy’s comments about Donald Trump.
