 FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Richie Farmer has entered a guilty plea to government corruption charges in a deal with prosecutors.
The former University of Kentucky basketball star-turned-politician faces about two years in prison for misdeeds while serving as the state's agriculture commissioner.
Appearing Friday morning in U.S. District Court in Frankfort, Farmer apologized for letting down the people of Kentucky.
Farmer was a shooting guard for the Wildcats from 1988 to 1992, a team known as ``The Unforgettables.'' His jersey hangs as a monument in the rafters of Rupp Arena.
Farmer was accused of using Department of Agriculture employees to work on his Frankfort home and hiring special assistants who did little or no work for the agency. He also was accused of using government employees to run personal errands for him.
