Katina Powell to meet with NCAA for a second time on Monday
Attorneys for Powell will not allow the NCAA to record the interview
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Katina Powell, the woman behind a sex scandal that prompted the University of Louisville to impose a postseason ban on its men's basketball team, will meet for the second time Monday with NCAA investigators.
Bart McMahon, one of Powell’s attorneys, said the NCAA requested the meeting because investigators had “follow-up questions based on their investigation” since they first met with Powell in November.
McMahon believes the NCAA wants to “corroborate” and “clarify” some information learned during the investigation. He said the NCAA’s request for another meeting was not a surprise.
In November, Powell, author of "Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen," spoke to investigators for five hours, outlining her account of what happened from beginning to end at Minardi Hall.
Like the last time, the interview on Monday, which will take place at attorney Larry Wilder’s office, will not be recorded, McMahon said. Representative for UofL will not be at the meeting, he added.
Powell has not talked with police but all of her records - her texts and journal entries - have been turned over to prosecutors as part of a subpoena to the book publisher. The University of Louisville police investigation is ongoing.
Powell, 42, has claimed that she hosted 22 stripping and sex parties from 2010 to 2014 inside Billy Minardi Hall, the on-campus dorm for athletes. She has said that former Louisville graduate assistant Andre McGee arranged the parties and paid her $10,000 for supplying dancers. (An examination of her book by WDRB News showed that her book outlined 11 parties in the dorm with less than $6,000 reported.)
