LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -A newspaper is reporting that Louisville coach Rick Pitino told police he had sex and paid for an abortion for the woman accused of trying to extort him for $10 million.
The Courier-Journal of Louisville reported on its Web site Tuesday that Pitino told police he had been been drinking in a Louisville restaurant and had consensual sex with Karen Sypher in August 2003. The police report says he denies allegations by Sypher that he raped her after the restaurant closed and at another time somewhere else.
Police reports say he told investigators he gave Sypher $3,000 to have an abortion.
Last month, a Kentucky prosecutor said a complaint filed with a police sex-offense unit by Sypher wouldn't be prosecuted because it lacks supporting evidence. Sypher has pleaded not guilty to federal charges of trying to extort money from Pitino and lying to the FBI.
