Richie Farmer's Frankfort home has a new owner, a bank.

The former Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner's home was sold at auction on Monday as part of a foreclosure proceeding.

The First National Bank of Manchester bought it for $175,000, according to the Master Commissioner.

The Bank plans to put the home back on the market.

This is the latest in what has been a difficult year for the former Clay County High School and U.K. basketball star.

He's going through a divorce with child support payment issues. 

His Agriculture Department was recently criticized in a scathing state audit.

He lost his bid to become the state's Lieutenant Governor.

He recently had hip replacement surgery.

And, the current Agriculture Commissioner, James Comer, announced that he's been informed that the FBI is investigating the Department when Farmer was Commissioner.
