FRANKFORT, Kentucky — The Executive Branch Ethics Commission has reached settlements with two brothers who worked in the state Agriculture Department under former Commissioner Richie Farmer.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1wn26HJ ) reports Bill Ed Mobley admitted claiming pay for times he didn't carry out his job duties. He also admitted violating the ethics code by claiming mileage reimbursement for trips he didn't take. He was reprimanded and fined him $3,000.

The commission found that Steve Mobley violated the ethics code for processing his brother's time sheets and mileage reimbursement claims and for failing to report a gift. He was reprimanded and fined $2,500.

The commission already reached settlements with Farmer and four other employees, and one case is still pending.

Farmer also pleaded guilty to federal corruption charges and is serving 27 months in prison.
