Rick Pitino

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Rick Pitino’s lawyer said the Louisville basketball coach might testify Tuesday or Wednesday in the case of a woman accused of trying to extort him.

Attorney Steve Pence, a former federal prosecutor, told The Associated Press that Pitino’s testimony could last at least half a day in the case of Karen Cunagin Sypher. Pitino was not at the trial Monday.

Sypher, 50, has pleaded not guilty to extortion, retaliating against a witness and lying to the FBI. She is accused of demanding college tuition for her children, her house to be paid off and $10 million.

A jury of eight men and eight women were selected to hear the case. Four jurors will be excused as alternates before deliberations begin.  Read more here
