Rene Boucher was charged with assaulting a member of Congress, resulting in personal injury and was released on a $25,000 bond while awaiting his sentencing date, which is set for June 15, CNN reported.
Paul was attacked November 3 while mowing his lawn at his home.
"He is anticipating acquiring an entire determination", Baker said. The charge carries maximum penalties of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
In a statement made in November to Kentucky State Police, which responded to a 911 call from Paul, Boucher admitted running onto the senator's property and tackling him as he mowed his lawn while wearing headphones after Boucher witnessed Paul stack brush on top of a pile near the senator's property.
Paul suffered multiple broken ribs in the attack.
Baker said Friday that the attack was a "complete lapse in judgment" by Boucher.
The two have always been next-door neighbors in their subdivision, but have disagreed over lawn maintenance. He developed pneumonia when he returned to Kentucky. The conditions include that Boucher have no contact with Paul or the senator's family.
In arguing for no prison time, Baker said, he'll note that Boucher's record had consisted of a speeding ticket before the attack. He said this was a dispute between longtime neighbors and not politically motivated.
