Former NBA player Jim Farmer was arrested during a sex crime sting last week which was targeting individuals attempting to procure sex with underage individuals. As Fox News reports:

Former NBA player Jim Farmer was arrested last week in a human trafficking sting, Tennessee authorities said.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said the 55-year-old was among 16 men arrested on charges of seeking sex with minors. The arrests occurred over two days beginning last Thursday, the state agency said.

Farmer, a onetime University of Alabama basketball standout who lives in Franklin, allegedly responded to an adult escort online advertisement to meet a minor for sex.

He communicated with a female undercover officer who said she was a 16-year-old girl, an arrest affidavit said, according to reporting by The Tennessean. He was arrested upon showing up for a meeting, and now faces one count of trafficking of sexual servitude, authorities said.


Farmer played for the Seattle Supersonics, Utah Jazz, and Dallas Mavericks during the 1980's and 90's.
