Corruption Trial

Farmer's Trial Delayed Until October

May 15, 2013

FRANKFORT, Ky.-- Richie Farmer's federal trial on charges of misappropriating government resources when he was agriculture commissioner has been moved to this fall.

Farmer, who starred on the University of Kentucky basketball team in the late 1980s and `90s, had asked that the trial, previously set for July 2, be continued until February. His lawyer, Guthrie True, said he needed more time to prepare for what he expected to be a complex case.
