Former NBA player Jim Farmer is facing new charges related to sex trafficking after he was indicted by a Rutherford County Grand Jury.
Farmer was first charged in October with sex trafficking after a two-day Tennessee Bureau of Investigation operation.
In total, 16 men were arrested on charges of seeking sex from minors.
The charge against the Franklin resident was tossed out by a General Sessions judge in November after hearing no evidence that supported the charge, Farmer’s attorneys said at the time.
Farmer’s new charges include attempted trafficking for sexual servitude, attempted patronizing prostitution and three counts of attempted solicitation of a minor.
According to an affidavit from the first arrest, Farmer responded to an adult escort advertisement for meeting a juvenile for sex.
During communication over the ad, an undercover officer identified herself as a 16-year-old girl.
Farmer agreed to pay $170 to have sex with the girl, the affidavit shows.
