    Former NBA, Alabama player Jim Farmer arrested on sex charge in Tennessee


    Former NBA player and one-time University of Alabama basketball standout Jim Farmer is facing a human trafficking charge in Middle Tennessee.
    Farmer, 55, of Franklin, Tenn. was among 16 men arrested on charges of seeking sex from minors, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation reported this week. A statement from the agency says the men were arrested during a two-day sting operation that began on Oct. 24.
    According to an arrest affidavit, Farmer responded to an adult escort advertisement on Oct. 25 in regards to meeting a juvenile for sex.
    During the communication, a female undercover officer identified herself as a 16-year-old girl. Farmer, the affidavit continues, agreed to pay $170 to have sex with the girl.
    Farmer arrived at a predetermined location made between the two and was subsequently arrested on one count of trafficking of sexual servitude, authorities said.
    He was booked into the Rutherford County jail that same day and released Tuesday on $75,000 bond.
