The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday remanded the lenient prison sentence given to the man who attacked Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on his property, finding that a federal district court lacked a “compelling justification” for sentencing him to only 30 days in prison.

Rene Boucher was arrested in November 2017 for attacking Paul outside his Kentucky home after the senator blew some leaves into his property. Boucher entered Paul’s property and tackled him from behind, breaking six of his ribs and causing a pleural effusion, which ultimately led to pneumonia.

The article goes on to state the following:

Paul said in a civil lawsuit against Boucher that he feared for his life during the attack.

In March 2018, Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress. Sentencing guidelines called for a range of 21 to 27 months in prison, but a federal court sentenced him to 30 days in June 2018 due to his “excellent background.”

    Boucher should get at least a prison sentence in accordance with the recommended guidelines— 21-27 months. That would be one year & 9 months up to two years & three months. And given that Paul had to have part of a lung removed because of the damage and repeated bouts of pneumonia, I don’t think the longer sentence is out of line— at least!
