BASKETBALL STAR'S DOWNFALL
Rifles, knives that played role in Farmer investigation being sold at auction

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 23, 2014 4:01 AM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


Customized rifles and pocket knives that helped lead to the downfall of former Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer are being auctioned off next month.

Farmer went into politics after a successful University of Kentucky basketball career more than two decades ago. He pleaded guilty last fall in a government corruption case and is serving 27 months in federal prison.

The federal indictment said Farmer used an account that mingled private and government funds to buy rifles and knives for visitors during a 2008 conference and kept many of the gifts.

The Agriculture Department said the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will sell 13 Remington rifles and 16 Case knives in an auction May 5 at agency headquarters. Proceeds will help fund an urban garden project.
