Looks like the Manchester Federal Correctional Institution is about to get a new shooting guard. This afternoon, former Cat Richie Farmer was sentenced to 27 months in federal prison for misusing funds during his time as State Agriculture Commissioner. That’s the maximum sentence. Farmer must also pay $125,500 in restitution to the state as part of his plea agreement.
He will report to prison on March 18. No word on what happens to all the stolen VCRs and fax machines.
