LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville coach Rick Pitino says a sex
scandal involving a woman accused of trying to extort him has been
"pure hell" for his family and that he's had enough.
Pitino addressed the media at a news conference Wednesday hours
after Louisville police released audio and video recordings of
phone calls and an interview with the woman at the heart of the
Pitino said that his advisers have told him not to discuss
details of the case but that the truth would come out at trial.
He admitted two weeks ago to having a sexual encounter in 2003
with Karen Cunagin Sypher, who was later charged with trying to
extort him for millions. Sypher is facing counts of extortion and
lying to the FBI.
