EASTERN LIVESTOCK: Farmers will get full restitution

Must return form to bond trustee

EDMONTON — Despite confusion over a recent letter, the 172 farmers named in the criminal case against Eastern Livestock will definitely get their money back, according to the Kentucky Attorney General’s office, but they also have to return a form to the USDA bond trustee in order to avoid being part of a lawsuit.

On March 27, Thomas Gibson, Steve McDonald, Grant Gibson and Darren Brangers, the four Eastern Livestock defendants, pleaded guilty in Metcalfe Circuit Court on variations of charges of organized crime and theft by deception. Grant Gibson and Brangers committed to paying $890,000 in restitution to the farmers, in order to avoid jail time. That amount guarantees that all farmers who received cold checks from Eastern in the fall of 2010 at the Edmonton buying station will receive full restitution.
