A judge decided not to continue with some charges against the person who attacked Paul Pelosi because they were already convicted of similar crimes in federal court. The San Francisco Public Defender’s Office said this.

David DePape was recently found guilty in federal court of hurting a family member of a federal official and trying to take a federal official. He got a 30-year prison sentence. This sentence will happen at the same time as any punishment he might get from the state court. After he’s done, he’ll probably be sent back to Canada.

Even after this federal trial, state lawyers kept going with their case against DePape. He hit Nancy Pelosi’s husband with a hammer in their San Francisco house in 2022. At that time, Paul Pelosi was 82.
