FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- University of Kentucky basketball icon Richie Farmer is asking that his trial on charges of misappropriating government resources while serving as agriculture commissioner be postponed until early next year.
The trial was initially set for July. But Farmer's attorney, Guthrie True, said that doesn't allow enough time to prepare for what he expects to be a complex case. True filed a motion Tuesday asking for a February trial date.
Farmer pleaded not guilty last month at an arraignment hearing in Lexington. He will remain free until his trial, which a prosecutor said is likely to last about three weeks.
Farmer, who served as agriculture commissioner from 2004 through 2011, could face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted on each of five counts.
