Man who attacked Rand Paul sentenced to additional time in confinement
By Justine Coleman - 07/27/20 03:50 PM EDT

The man who attacked Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in 2017 was sentenced Monday to an additional 14 months in confinement.

U.S. District Judge Matthew F. Leitman gave Rene Boucher the additional sentence of eight months in prison and six months on home confinement, the Lexington Herald Leader reported. The new punishment came after prosecutors had argued the initial sentence did not appropriately reflect the injuries Paul endured from the attack.

"There's absolutely no downplaying the seriousness of the harm you visited on Sen. Paul and his family," Leitman said, according to the Bowling Green Daily News.


Boucher was originally sentenced to serve 30 days in jail, complete 100 hours of community service and pay a $10,000 fine. A federal appeals court vacated the 30-day sentence last year, saying it was too lenient and granting prosecutors the chance to try to get a tougher punishment.

I remember that so well - Paul was on a moving riding mower, allowing Boucher to come up behind him without being heard due to the noise of the mower, and slammed Paul's body to the ground, breaking Paul's ribs.  The unexpected hit must have scrambled Paul's brain trying to determine what happened to him; why he was on the ground in pain.  Boucher is also a medical doctor - he knew what he was doing - he deserves to be in prison a long time.

Rand Paul should get to beat him with a stick.
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

A helluva lot longer than this.

It was intentional, it was grave--even deadly.

10 days or 30 days is a joke.
