LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The woman convicted of trying to extort University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino has lost her latest bid for a new trial.
U.S. District Judge Charles R. Simpson III on Tuesday rejected arguments from Karen Cunagin Sypher, saying there's no new evidence that would warrant granting her second request for a new trial.
Sypher was convicted in August of extortion, lying to the FBI and retaliation against a witness. Prosecutors said she sought millions in cash, cars and a house from Pitino to stay quiet about their one-night stand at a Louisville restaurant in 2003. A judge on Feb. 18 sentenced Sypher to more than seven years in federal prison. She has remained free since then.
A jury convicted Sypher in August. She is appealing the conviction.
