Farmer's trial delayed till October

FRANKFORT, Ky (WYMT) - Former State Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer's trial will start a later than expected.

The trial was originally scheduled for July, but today a federal judge delayed it until October 22, 2013.

Farmer had requested the trial be delayed until February claiming the case was complex.

However, the judge said delaying it that long would be excessive.
Farmer faces 'federal' charges of misappropriating government resources.

His trial will be held in Frankfort.
