FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A federal judge has delayed former University of Kentucky basketball star Richie Farmer’s report date to a federal prison by a week.
Farmer is now due to report March 25 to the federal prison in Hazelton, W.Va., to serve his 27-month prison term.
The former Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner asked for the delay to 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.
Farmer gained basketball fame as part of “The Unforgettables” - a group of Wildcats who stayed with the program through NCAA sanctions and led Kentucky to the 1992 NCAA tournament.
