The case against David DePape, who allegedly attacked Paul Pelosi in his California home last year, saw several police officers testify Monday. Federal prosecutors based their case on video footage of the attack. DePape’s attorneys admitted their client’s involvement in the attack. The 83-year-old victim, Paul Pelosi, was confronted by DePape in his bedroom, asking for Nancy Pelosi. DePape struck Pelosi with a hammer, resulting in skull fractures and other injuries. DePape admitted in interrogation that he planned to abduct Nancy Pelosi and had other targets. He faces federal charges of attempted kidnapping and assault, along with state charges of attempted murder and other felonies. Paul Pelosi is expected to testify against DePape at trial.
