Democrat pleads guilty to sneak assault on Rand Paul

Rand Paul's attacker has pleaded guilty to assaulting the Senator on the front lawn of his Kentucky home. He

U.S. Senator Rand Paul was tackled by his Kentucky neighbor previous year, resulting in broken ribs following the attack.

Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress resulting in personal injury, a felony under federal law.

A judge set a June 15 sentencing date for the retired anesthesiologist, who is in his late 50s. Prosecutors have recommended Boucher serve a 21-month prison sentence and face a fine, the exact amount which has yet to be determined.

The Nov. 3 incident between the two men left Kentucky's junior senator with broken ribs and led to Paul being treated for pneumonia.

The 59-year-old Boucher has admitted to tackling Paul from behind as he mowed his lawn last November. He suffered six broken ribs.

In arguing for no prison time, Baker said, he'll note that Boucher's record had consisted of a speeding ticket before the attack.

A staffer with Paul's office disputed media reports that Paul or his wife Kelley had any "longstanding dispute" with their neighbor. He agreed to either follow a route that takes him away from Paul's home, or to take his dog to a nearby park, Baker said. Rand Paul past year pleaded guilty Friday to one felony charge of assaulting a member of Congress resulting in personal injury. "This was not a fight, it was a blindside, violent attack by a disturbed person".

Boucher has explained that the attack was not politically motivated, but was merely over a property dispute.
