Paul Pelosi’s Attacker Has Been Indicted By A Federal Judge
Depape pleaded not guilty to all state charges during his first appearance in court.
A grand jury has returned a federal indictment for the man accused of violently attacking Paul Pelosi late last month.
With the indictment, David Depape is facing both federal and state charges which include attempted murder, residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, elderly abuse, false imprisonment of an elder, and threats to a public official as well as their family.
Depape pleaded not guilty to all state charges during his first appearance in court. He also waived his right to a hearing within 10 days of his arraignment and waived his appearance in court last week.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 14th.
The DOJ announced that if Depape is convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison for the assault count and 20 years in prison for the attempted kidnapping count.
