A man who attacked the elderly husband of former U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with a hammer was sentenced Friday to 30 years in prison.

David DePape was convicted last year of breaking into the couple's San Francisco home and bludgeoning Paul Pelosi in a horrifying attack captured on police bodycam.

At the time of the October 2022 assault, Democrat Nancy Pelosi was second in line to the presidency and a regular target of outlandish far-right conspiracy theories.
