According to a report, the accused burglar who smashed into Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s house last October and battered her 82-year-old husband will go to trial.
His attorneys met in San Francisco Superior Court last Wednesday morning to schedule the trial.
David DePape pled not guilty on six counts, including false detention, attempted murder, first-degree domestic burglary, assault with a dangerous weapon, elder abuse, and intimidating a family member of a public official. DePape was not present in court.
The defense asked for and was allowed extra time to prepare. Thus no trial date has been scheduled. On June 14th, they’ll be back in court to schedule their trial.
On October 29 in San Francisco, DePape was captured on camera stealing into the Pelosi residence and hitting Paul Pelosi using a hammer.
Paul Pelosi had been knocked out and found himself lying in a pool of blood when he came to. A skull fracture and severe damage to his right arm led to surgery.
The report shows Nancy Pelosi was in Washington, D.C. when DePape informed an investigator he planned to kidnap her.
According to the criminal complaint, DePape told police he planned to kidnap the Democrat and fracture her knees to send a message to other lawmakers that there would be repercussions to their actions.
A court found in favor of the prosecution at a preliminary hearing in December 2022.
The San Francisco County Jail is now housing DePape.
Last May, 82-year-old Paul Pelosi was arrested on charges of DUI with damage and operating a vehicle with a BAC of 0.08% or higher.
The allegations stem from an automobile collision that occurred in May 2022 in northern California’s wine region.
The Napa County District Attorney’s Office reported that Pelosi was detained, and a blood sample was obtained after the collision.
According to the CHP (California Highway Patrol), Paul Pelosi drove a 2021 Porsche approaching a junction in the Yountville area when he crashed into a 2014 Jeep.
