Rene Boucher, the man who pleaded guilty to attacking his neighbor Sen. Rand Paul, has been sentenced to 30 days along with a year of supervised release, according to a case manager with Kentucky Western District federal court.
Boucher pleaded guilty in March to one felony charge of assaulting a member of Congress resulting in personal injury. The attack last fall, which stemmed in part over a dispute about landscaping, left Paul, a Kentucky Republican, with six broken ribs and bruised lungs.
According to the plea deal, Boucher said he "had enough" after seeing the senator stacking more brush on a brush pile.

Another lightweight punishment for haters of freedom loving people
So he’ll spend less time in jail then Manafort, a guy who’s not accused of any violence, and is likely innocent of everything anyway - great “justice” system, huh?
Attack Republican physically - get off with fluff sentence
Look like you might have committed paperwork or process crime - get imprisoned on Draconian charges
Hey, if 30 days is all one gets for NEARLY KILLING a US Senator, I may want to join the fun, along with many others here.
Just how deep is the rot in our ‘justice’ system?
Forgot to add:
“Look like you might have committed paperwork or process crime but you’re a Republican - get imprisoned on Draconian charges”
30 days for a totally unprovoked violent attack causing serious injuries?
30 DAYS for almost ruining a man’s life??? I DESPISE the “JUST US” Dept!
30 days for felony criminal assault? I guess he got time shaved off because Rand Paul is a Republican.
I’m surprised they didn’t charge Paul with causing the guy to beat him like that.
TDS gets man 30 days
30 days??? WTF?
How much time would Rand Paul have gotten if the tables were turned?
It is time to start planning who gets trimmed first as the tree of Liberty is in need.
Guess someone gave the judge a phone call? Or he/she is a devoted DemonRat? I can’t imagine that kind of sentence when you could have killed the man. And a Republican is sentenced to Five years for a perhaps accidental misstatement to one of Comey’s finest.
I winder how much time you get for beating the crap out of a filthy, biased judge?
Attempted murder on a US Senator gets only a 30-day sentence?
Is this a joke?
As long as you are a Demonrat, it is perfectly OK to try to murder a US Senator, and the media will whitewash it for you. We live in the last days of the Republic. The killing time comes soon.
And Yet Paul Manafort sits in prison having been convicted of nothing and charged with white collar crimes.
Welcome to the BULLSHIT STATES OF AMERICA!
Violence against republicans is acceptable and even encouraged. I’m surprised Rand wasn’t arrested for assault for repeatedly beating his ribs against the poor mans fist or baseball bat.
