Sypher's latest request to stay free denied

Posted:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB Fox 41) -- Karen Sypher will report to federal prison next week.

A federal judge has denied her latest request to stay free while she appeals her conviction.

Sypher is scheduled to report Wednesday to a Florida prison.

She was sentenced in February to more than seven years for extortion and lying to the FBI.

Prosecutors said she sought millions in cash, cars and a house from U of L basketball coach Rick Pitino to stay quiet about their sexual encounter at a Louisville restaurant.
