Rand Paul's Alleged Attacker Agrees to Guilty Plea

Boucher has maintained that the attack was not politically motivated, but that he had "had enough" with Paul's haphazard landscaping methods. Boucher is a retired anesthesiologist and has been Paul's longtime neighbor. Meanwhile, Paul's team has denied that, alluding to Boucher's liberal political leanings as the reason (though he hasn't said that explicitly). "Those who choose to commit such an act will be held accountable".
Paul was attacked on November 3 while mowing his lawn when he was allegedly tackled by Boucher from behind. Rand Paul, R-Ky., faces federal assault charges, the Department of Justice announced Friday.
Senator Rand Paul's neighbor is expected to admit to violently tackling the Republican politician. However, the claim that the attack was the result of a lawn-care dispute seemed like a stretch given that, according to Rand Paul, there was no argument or discussion of any kind prior to the tackle. The dispute has been a longstanding difference between the two, who have been neighbors for 17 years, Mr. Baker said. Paul had recently said he broke six ribs during the altercation but "each day I feel a little bit better".
As part of the plea agreement, the defense will acknowledge that Boucher was responsible for attacking Paul.
The Louisville Office of the FBI further investigated the incident. Baker said he planned to request that the judge assigned to the case sentence Boucher to probation and not prison. While Boucher is already awaiting sentencing after reaching a plea deal on local charges, he's now been charged with a federal crime, as well.
A spokesman for the senator declined to comment on the charge.
