Court vacates sentence for Rand Paul's neighbor, says it was too lenient

Court vacates sentence for Rand Paul's neighbor, says it was too lenient | 09 Sept 2019 | A federal appeals court on Monday vacated a 30-day prison sentence for a neighbor of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) who assaulted him in 2017, ruling it was overly lenient and ordering a resentencing. In a 16-page opinion, Judge Jane B. Stranch of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, writes that the lower court where Rene Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress had "no compelling justification" for sentencing him far below federal guidelines...The opinion offers examples of other 30-day sentences for assaulting members of Congress and notes that the damage paled in comparison to that of Boucher, who broke five of Paul's ribs and caused injuries that later required part of Paul’s lung to be removed.
