Richie Farmer's Prison Report Date Delayed

A federal judge has delayed Richie Farmer's report date to a federal prison by a week.
A federal judge has delayed former UK basketball star Richie Farmer's report date to a federal prison by a week.

On Friday a US district judge wrote he granted the extension out of deference to farmer's family, not as a special privilege to Farmer.

Farmer is now due to report March 25 to the federal prison in Hazelton, West Virginia to serve his 27-month prison term.

The former Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner asked for the delay so he could see his son play in the Kentucky state high school basketball tournament.

Farmer pleaded guilty in September to using state resources for his personal benefit.
