Woman convicted in Pitino plot wants new trial
Question of the Day
LOUISVILLE, KY. (AP) - The woman convicted of trying to extort University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino is asking a federal judge for a new trial and to allow an outside examination of evidence in her case.
Karen Cunagin Sypher’s new legal team filed the request late Wednesday night, saying Pitino, prosecutors and businesses in Louisville “worked to ensure they destroy” Sypher, who accused Pitino of forcing her to have sex in a restaurant in 2003. Pitino was never charged.
Sypher is also requesting that audio tapes and photographs used at her trial be examined by reviewers of her choice.
Sypher was convicted in August of three counts of extortion, two counts of lying to the FBI and a count of retaliation against a witness. Her sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 18 in U.S. District Court in Louisville.
