Judge considers Farmer’s request to lower child support

Sep 17, 2012

A Franklin County judge is weighing whether to grant University of Kentucky basketball star and former Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer's request to reduce his child support payments. Family Court Judge Squire Williams heard testimony from Farmer and his ex-wife, Rebecca Farmer, late last week.  Farmer says he is unable to find work due to ongoing health issues and a continuing investigation by the state Attorney General’s office into Farmer’s alleged use of state personnel and resources while heading the agriculture department.
