I was among many people shocked and outraged by the lenient sentence — 30 days! — handed down to Rand Paul’s next-door neighbor, Rene Boucher, by U.S. District Court judge Marianne Battani, “a special judge called in from Michigan.”
Recall that Senator Paul was gravely injured by Boucher, requiring hospitalization several times, and now, two years after the incident, he had to be hospitalized again to have part of his lung removed. In addition, he has suffered extreme pain for an extended period.
Judge Battani was appointed to the federal bench by Bill Clinton.
But this slap on the wrist for grave injury was just overturned by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Kayla McGhee reports in the Examiner:
Two years, six broken ribs, several bouts of pneumonia, and one hernia surgery later, Rand Paul might finally get the justice he deserves.
In 2017, the Kentucky Republican was attacked by a neighbor while mowing his lawn. He ended up in the hospital and has been in and out several times since. (snip)
