Richie Farmer’s Plea Deal Accepted

Richie Farmer

The latest in Richie Farmer’s ongoing legal drama is in, and the Executive Branch Ethics Commission has agreed to the former “Unforgettable’s” plea deal that he made last week.  The deal will include “the largest ethics fine in state history,” according to the Daily Journal.  It also includes a record for most counts against a Kentucky official.

The deal comes in lieu of a possible 10 years in prison and a maximum $1,000,000 fine, which would have been merited under the counts levied against him.  Instead, Farmer is looking at up to 27 months of prison time and $120,500 of compensatory payment.

The agreement, however, is contingent on a guilty plea by Farmer, who previously plead “not guilty.”  Previously scheduled to appear in court in October, Richie will instead appear before a judge on Friday to enter a “guilty” plea.

This looks like it should resolve a lot of the questions left in Farmer’s protracted pitfall.  We’ll see exactly what punishment the judge enters on Friday, and maybe after that we can go on forgetting the Unforgettable.

    “up to” 27 months of prison time and $120,500

    It won’t be nearly that.

    It is a shame that the scum bag David Williams isn’t taking the ride to the jail cell with Richie.
    Williams is and was a much bigger crook than Farmer ever dreamed of being.
    Hell, throw Ernie Fletcher in the same cell and they could have a 3-way !

    Megan apparently you don’t understand what a Federal plea deal means. Once he takes it and pleads gulity on Friday, that is it. It is set in stone.

    This is not a question about what he is going to get. This is what he is getting.

    Yeah #2 he clearly deserves to be raped for stealing public funds. And #3 I see #2 isn’t the only one fixated on gay acts forced or consensual. Good grief are you seriously judging Farmer? Don’t you two need to finish your homework? First hour in 8th grade starts awfully early.

    Sad!!! It’s hard to think of a story anywhere in all of college athletics ever like the one with Richie! It is so sad and disappointing. In a state where college basketball rules and to have his story from beginning to legend to jail is shameful.

    Most likely if Richie never runs with Williams then this does not even come out. Richie got caught, but it is hard to imagine what other politicians have got away with.

    Ace its true that others have gotten away with as much and more than Lil Richie, but it was not running with Williams that got him nailed. It was this…

    “Current Commission Jamie Comer says he ordered the internal audit when his new staff started coming forward with concerns about their old boss. It looks at everything from hiring practices to the money spent starting back in January 2004 when Farmer took office. Edelen says they are only now uncovering the claims because people finally felt safe to speak up”.

    Once the order for that audit was signed Lil Richie as as good as gone up the river.
