LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Karen Sypher's legal team wants an oriental rug seen in photos during her trial to be tested. The prosecution used the pictures to convict Sypher of lying to the FBI.

Sypher's former divorce attorney Dana Kolter took the photos before Sypher allegedly performed a sex act on him. Sypher's legal team claims the photographs were doctored and want to perform tests on the rug.

Sypher was also found guilty of trying to extort millions of dollars from University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino, as well as retaliation. Sypher is scheduled to be sentenced on January 18.
