And now, some unfortunate news on a former Kentucky great. Richie Farmer was arrested for a DUI this evening in London.
Farmer, the former Agriculture Commissioner of Kentucky, served a 27-month sentence for misappropriating government resources while in office, including using taxpayer dollars to buy personal gifts and state employees to build a basketball court at his home. In addition to his sentence, he paid $120,000 in restitution. He was released in late 2015.
It’s been a rough road for Richie. Here’s hoping he gets the help he needs.
