In the kentucky assault case noted yesterday, the Rand Paul supporter, Tim Profitt, admits on camera to stepping on the victim in the case.As we noted yesterday, the scuffle occurred before a Senate campaign debate.
The defendant admitted to holding her down on the ground with his foot. He claims to have used his foot to hold her down instead of bending over, because of his own back pain.
After the criminal summons, a judge in Kentucky has not found sufficient grounds to charge Profitt with 4th degree assault.
Most defense lawyers would strongly advice their clients accused of an assault charge to not speak to anyone about the case, particularly the press, and especially on camera. As it stands, it appears very likely that he has admitted to sufficient facts to find him guilty of that charge.
