Rand Paul's Neighbor Intends to Plead Guilty to Assault

Rand Paul's Neighbor Intends to Plead Guilty to Assault

Rand Paul, R-Ky., was charged Friday with assaulting a member of Congress, resulting in personal injury - a federal felony. Paul, who had been mowing his lawn and was wearing headphones, did not see Boucher until the last second.

"Assaulting a member of Congress is an offense we take very seriously", Minkler said in a statement.

In a plea agreement filed Friday, Boucher acknowledged that he faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. Boucher is expected to be sentenced at a later date.

Boucher has maintained that the attack was not politically motivated, but that he had "had enough" with Paul's haphazard landscaping methods.

"Those who choose to commit such an act will be held accountable". The U.S. attorney for the Western District of Kentucky was recused from handling the case, so it was transferred to Indiana.

Previously, puberty used to occur around the age of 14 but with improved health and nutrition around the world to age 10. Currently, young adults are also getting married and having kids at a later age.

Police say the assault began after Senator Paul piled brush up in the corner of the neighboring yards.

The case is being handled by the Louisville FBI office. Paul said he suffered multiple broken ribs and had fluid on his lungs as a result of the assault.

Paul and Boucher's neighbors have also voiced much speculation, saying that the two had had a fraught relationship for years.

A spokesman for the senator declined to comment on the charge. The lawns in the gated community of River Green in Bowling Green are "picture flawless", Mr. Baker said, adding that the senator maintains piles of compost and lawn clippings around his property.
