Government denies Sypher's latest motion

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - On Monday, the U.S. government denied Karen Sypher's motion for a new trial.

In August, jurors convicted Sypher of trying to extort millions of dollars from University of Louisville coach Rick Pitino.

She has been appealing ever since.

Last month Judge Charles Simpson sentenced Sypher to more than seven years in prison. However, Judge Simpson released her on bond.
