David DePape was convicted on both federal charges related to the hammer attack on Paul Pelosi.
In October 2022, 43-year-old David DePape unlawfully entered the Pelosis’ San Francisco home and assaulted Paul Pelosi with a hammer.
Upon police arrival at the residence, Paul Pelosi answered the door. Shortly thereafter, DePape attacked him with a hammer, resulting in a fractured skull.

ABC News reported:
A federal jury has convicted the suspect accused of the violent hammer attack against Paul Pelosi at his and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco home last year.
The jury began deliberating Wednesday afternoon before reaching a verdict late Thursday morning, finding David DePape guilty on both federal counts.
Pelosi, 83, suffered a skull fracture after being struck in the head with a hammer during the early morning attack on Oct. 28, 2022, which occurred just days before the midterm elections, police said.
DePape, 43, was arrested at the scene and subsequently charged with attempted kidnapping and assault on account of a federal official’s performance of official duties. The charges carry a maximum sentence of 20 years and 30 years, respectively, in prison. He has pleaded not guilty.
DePape is also facing state charges in the attack on Paul Pelosi.
