Richie Farmer reaches plea deal, could spend up to two years in prison

caliparirichie

WUKY is reporting that Richie Farmer has reached a plea deal with prosecutors in his government corruption case that will put him in prison for up to two years. His attorney filed a motion for a change of plea this morning, which means he’s agreed to resolve all pending and potential criminal and ethics charges stemming from misconduct during his time as Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner.

Without the plea deal, Richie could have faced 10 years in prison if convicted. If the deal is approved by court, Richie faces a sentence of 21 to 27 months and will pay restitution and fines of $120,500.

Hopefully this concludes a bad news week for our former Cats.

    I feel so betrayed…have you seen the most recent picture of him? He has a full goatee. It’s like we don’t even know him anymore.

    Richie was set up by powerful forces to remove him from public stage.
    His future plans stood in the way of their total domination of the Commonwealth

    He will never do a day in jail, Richie knows too many people.

    Dick Johnson is dead right – if you aren’t on the proper side of government corruption – then those same forces will bury you.

    What an absolute a$$hole Farmer is. He deserves to go to prison.

    Why would you post a picture of Farmer with John Calipari? Only one you could find? Poor choice!

    If Coach Cal sees this picture, he is going to be pfissed off.

    Dick Johnson? Were your parents intentionally being redundant when they named you? Judging by your comments, I would venture to guess no.

    Ricie Farmer is a loser and a felon. Mr Keightley would have smacked him upside he head if h was still alive.

    IMHO, when Rupp is being renovated, they should remove his jersey from the rafters.
