Eighteen-Year-Old Tony Farmer Reacts To The Judge’s Three Year Prison Sentence

Instead of attending elaborate dinners and ceremonies commemorating his college pick, 18-year-old Tony Farmer will be spending three years in prison. The 6-foot-7 athlete is one of Ohio’s top picks in the sport of basketball. He pleaded guilty to kidnapping, felonious assault, and other crimes.

Farmer was involved in an altercation last April with his ex-girlfriend, Andrea Lane. Video footage from Lane’s apartment complex showed the dispute. It even captured Farmer dragging Lane by her hair at one point. Farmer was later charged with intimidation after sending threatening text messages to Lane following the dispute.

Upon receiving his sentence, Farmer collapsed into the arms of a sheriff’s deputy and fell to the floor in utter disappointment. Lane was among many people in court who were sobbing after Judge Pamela Barker delivered the sentence. “I know he was a good person,” Lane said. “I hope he still is.

Prior to being sentenced to prison, Farmer had the interest of Ohio State, Xavier, Dayton and Michigan State. Do you believe he received an adequate punishment?
