Senator Rand Paul’s attacker is set to be in court tomorrow.
Rene Boucher pleaded "not guilty" to 4th degree assault at the Warren County Justice Center earlier this month, a misdemeanor charge carrying up to a year in jail.
He is accused of attacking the Senator in the yard of his home, which resulted in six broken ribs and a pleural effusion, a buildup of fluid in the lungs.
Tomorrow at 1:30 PM will be the next step – the pre-trial conference. This is where both parties meet before a trial judge and discuss the evidence in the case. If the case is not settled, preparations for the trial begin.
