Farmer sentenced for state charges

Frankfort, Kentucky - Former Agriculture Commissioner and UK Basketball star Richie Farmer was back inside a courtroom on Friday, learning his sentence for state fraud charges.

Farmer will serve one year in prison.

That sentence is to run concurrently with the sentence handed down in federal court earlier this week.

The judge there ordered Farmer to serve 27 months in prison, and pay more than $120,000 in restitution.
