Paul has said he's recovering well from the attack.
The two had an ongoing dispute over yard maintenance for a few months.
The two have always been next-door neighbors in their subdivision, but have disagreed over lawn maintenance.
The plea agreement between Boucher and federal prosecutors contains similar language and Baker reiterated Boucher's characterization of the nature of the dispute after court Friday. He is now free on bond.
Boucher was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond on Friday and is not allowed to contact Paul or his family.
That includes Boucher's daily walks with his dog. Paul said the injuries left him in a "living hell".
