David DePape, the man convicted of breaking into Nancy Pelosi’s home and attacking her husband Paul Pelosi with a hammer, has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison. 

According to ABC News, federal prosecutors were seeking a 40-year sentence for DePape’s conviction on charges of attempted kidnapping of a federal officer or employee and assault of an immediate family member of a federal official.  

Prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memorandum, "The defendant planned a violent hostage-taking of the Speaker Emerita, and then nearly killed her husband.  The defendant planned and unleashed violence and has stayed true to his belief that the actions were necessary." 

"The violent lessons that the defendant wanted to teach are not permitted in this country, and the sentence that this court imposes must reflect the nature and circumstances of the offense," prosecutors said.
