LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Jury selection begins Monday in the high profile case against Karen Sypher. She is accused of trying to extort 10-million dollars from U of L's basketball coach Rick Pitino.
Other charges include lying to law enforcement and retaliating against a witness. Federal prosecutors say they'll try to prove Sypher has made similar accusations before. The defense is not disclosing too many details ahead of the July 26th trial.
