Date set for re-sentencing of man who attacked Rand Paul

Published Thu Jun 18 2020 21:05:23 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
A new sentencing date was set for a Kentucky man who tackled U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, breaking several of the lawmakers ribs. Rene Boucher was scheduled to be re-sentenced on July 27. Boucher served a 30-day sentence, and paid a $10,000 fine after pleading guilty to attacking his then-neighbor Paul. Federal prosecutors appealed the sentence, stating 30 days was too lenient considering Paul’s injuries. A federal appeals court agreed to re-sentence Boucher and vacate his 30-day sentence. Boucher’s attorney said the decision to re-sentence Boucher was giving prosecutors a second chance and this wouldn't happen if the incident didn’t involved a Senator.
