LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Rick Pitino's lawyer says police have interviewed Pitino and have been investigating allegations brought by a woman charged with trying to extort money from the Louisville coach.
Attorney Steve Pence said Monday that Pitino has been cooperating with investigators and the allegations are false. The woman, Karen Cunagin Sypher, pleaded not guilty last month in federal court to charges of trying to extort money from Pitino and lying to the FBI.
Commonwealth's Attorney Dave Stengel says the Louisville police sex-offense unit contacted him last week to tell him Cunagin Sypher had made a complaint. Stengel says an investigation of the matter probably will be completed this week.
Louisville police say they spoke with the woman but wouldn't comment further.
