    Plea Deal for Rene Boucher for attacking Rand

    Department of Justice
    U.S. Attorney’s Office
    Southern District of Indiana
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Friday, January 19, 2018
    Kentucky Man Charged With Assaulting a Member of Congress
    Victim attacked while mowing his yard.

    PRESS RELEASE

    Indianapolis-Josh J. Minkler, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, announced today that Rene A. Boucher, 58, Bowling Green, Kentucky, has been charged with assaulting a member of congress resulting in personal injury, a felony under federal law.

    “Assaulting a member of Congress is an offense we take very seriously,” said Minkler. “Those who choose to commit such an act will be held accountable.”

    According to court documents, Boucher and the victim are neighbors in Bowling Green, Kentucky. On November 3, 2017, the victim was mowing his yard while wearing headphones. Boucher allegedly witnessed the victim stack brush onto a pile near the victim’s property and “had enough.” Boucher ran onto the victim’s property and tackled the victim. As a result of this assault, the victim suffered multiple fractured ribs and subsequently contracted and required medical attention for pneumonia. Boucher admitted the assault but denied it was politically motivated.

    The United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Indiana was assigned the case following the recusal of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Kentucky where the offense is alleged to have been committed.

    Boucher has signed a plea agreement but no date has been set for the taking of his guilty plea and the imposition of sentence.

    This case was investigated by the Louisville office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    "Just as we are committed to protecting the American people, the FBI will not tolerate violence directed against members of Congress," said Special Agent in Charge Amy S. Hess of the FBI's Louisville field office. "Those who choose to assault any federal official are certain to face serious consequences."

    No future court dates have been set.

    An information is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven otherwise in federal court.

    According to Assistant United States Attorney Bradley P. Shepard of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Indiana who is prosecuting this case as a Special Attorney to the United States Attorney General, Boucher faces up to 10 years’ imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000.

    I also notice they're happy to tell us what punishment he could be but won't be getting, but they're not telling what punishment he will be getting.

    Interesting. Why the recusal?

    At least he is officially a felon now, the state charges are a joke.

    It's still not anywhere near enough, Rand needs to take everything he owns in a civil suit and get a lifetime restraining order.

    I wonder if they mean near the perp's property.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Maybe has something to do with this? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregory_N._Stivers

    "Gregory Neil Stivers (born June 20, 1960) is a United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky."

    "Stivers is a neighbor of Senator Rand Paul.[7] At the time of Stivers' nomination, Paul's Senate office in Bowling Green was in the same building that housed Stivers' law firm"

    "As a matter of full disclosure, Alicia Stivers’ husband is U.S. District Judge Greg Stivers, who was nominated to the federal bench by Senator Paul. Alicia Stivers says Paul called her husband right after the attack, said he feared Boucher might return, and that he had called police." http://wkms.org/post/friend-rand-paul-attack-was-property-related

    Should have known. Democrat partisans never recuse themselves, even when they are investigating themselves.

    The real "punishment" will be a felony conviction for a violent act. That guy better not leave his house ever when he does get out, because that conviction amplifies all sentencing considerations he might face for other charges.

    Pro tip for everyone reading......NEVER accept any kind of deal for any kind of assault charges. Fight, appeal...whatever you got to do. But don't ever just accept it.

    Unless you are guilty with no hope of hoodwinking the jury and can get a reduced sentence like this freak.

    LOL....honestly, freak is probably being generous when speaking to this $#@!. But wasn't he a retired MD or something? That and living in a neighborhood with a federal judge and a Senator means he has the financial means to hire a $#@! kicker lawyer and at least go down fighting. Of course, to be fair as well....due to those same "advantages" it's also safe to assume he is an extreme low risk of having to worry about that conviction coming back to haunt him as well.
