Ritchie Farmer Child Support Hearing Today


Former Kentucky agriculture commissioner Richie Farmer will be in court this morning asking for a reduction to his child support payments.   Farmer says he's making the request because he no longer holds the top position at the state’s agriculture department and will be incapacitated for two months following surgery later this month. Farmer's lawyer has said the former U-K basketball star hasn't been employed since his term expired January First. Farmer and his wife divorced last month.
