Farmer, a 6'4" 190 lb small forward, played for the Mavericks, Utah Jazz, Seattle SuperSonics, Philadelphia 76ers, and Denver Nuggets in 5 NBA seasons. His best stint as an NBA player was during the 1990-91 season when he appeared in 25 games for the Nuggets and averaged 10.0 ppg. He was recently arrested in a TBI sting operation for soliciting sex from an underaged female officer working undercover. The crime is a felony human trafficking crime in Tennessee. Charges are still pending.
Farmer was one of 16 men arrested in the two-day sting operation southeast of Nashville, Tennessee. He allegedly responded to an adult escort advertisement and agreed to both meet and pay $170 to an undercover officer who identified herself as a 16-year-old girl for sex, per the report.
