 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A woman accused of trying to extort millions from Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino has entered a not guilty plea in federal court in Louisville.
Karen Cunagin (KOON'-ah-gen) Sypher (SY'-fur) was arraigned Wednesday afternoon on charges of trying to extort money from Pitino and lying to the FBI. The estranged wife of a longtime Pitino aide was indicted Tuesday.
Sypher was greeted at the federal courthouse by a small group of supporters who accompanied her to the courtroom.
The case became public last month when Pitino released a statement saying someone had tried to extort him.
Authorities have not said what sort of information Karen Sypher might have been trying to use to extort Pitino.
