(SNews) – San Francisco Superior Court Judge Stephen Murphy has just released the police body camera video of Paul Pelosi’s alleged attack, making it available to the public.
As Slay News reported earlier this week, the judge ordered that the video footage be made public after a lawsuit demanded that it be released.
Several news outlets sued to have the records made public, including The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The Associated Press, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Press Democrat, CNN, Fox News, NBC, ABC, CBS, and KQED San Francisco.
The San Francisco District Attorney’s Office tried to argue that releasing the video would distort the facts of the case.
Meanwhile, lawyers for Pelosi’s alleged attacker David DePape argued that releasing the video could “irreparably harm” his right to a fair trial.
If he is convicted, DePape could face up to 30 years in prison for the assault and 20 years for attempted kidnapping.
He also faces state charges.
Now the video has been released so the public can decide for themselves.
