(CNN) -- The Kentucky man who tackled Sen. Rand Paul last year pleaded guilty Friday to one felony charge of assaulting a member of Congress resulting in personal injury. Rene Boucher was released on $25,000 unsecured bond and has a sentencing date tentatively scheduled for June 15, said Kelly Lovell, a case manager for Kentucky's western district federal court. Boucher agreed to a plea deal in January over the November 3 incident. Federal prosecutors have said they will pursue a 21-month jail sentence against him. Paul sustained six broken ribs and bruised lungs in the incident, which stemmed in part over a dispute over landscaping.
