Farmer reports to prison Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

WEST VIRGINIA (WAVE) – Former Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer will report to prison Tuesday after an extra week of freedom.

Farmer was supposed to begin serving his sentence March 18, but a judge granted the UK basketball star a week-long extension so he could watch his son play in the boy's Sweet 16 at Rupp Arena.

He will serve his 27-month sentence in West Virginia for misusing Kentucky taxpayer funds.
