LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -The lawyer for a woman accused of trying to extort millions of dollars from Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino has asked a federal judge to delay her trial.
Karen Cunagin Sypher's attorney, Thomas Clay, said in a motion Thursday that he doesn't have all the documents prosecutors were supposed to turn over in time to go to trial as scheduled on June 29.
Prosecutors have until June 17 to respond to the delay request.
The 49-year-old Sypher, of Louisville, pleaded not guilty last month to charges of trying to extort money from Pitino and lying to the FBI. A criminal complaint claimed her demands included college tuition for her children, two cars, her house to be paid off and $3,000 per month.
The complaint says the demands later escalated to $10 million.
