(NECN/WHAS: Louisville, Ky.) - Karen Sypher faces a federal indictment for allegedly lying to the FBI and trying to extort money from Rick Pitino. On the night of Thunder Over Louisville 2009 a statement from the Louisville Men's Basketball coach said that a woman was going to the media with lies and attempting to extort money from him. That woman was Karen Cunagin Sypher. A month later, Sypher was indicted for extortion. "Every day there is a new piece of to my puzzle and when this puzzle is put together the whole world will know the truth," Sypher said in an interview with WHAS a few weeks ago. She told the television news station that the truth is documented in police reports. In those reports, she said that Rick Pitino forced himself on her in a leather lounge chair at Porcini, a local restaurant, after it had closed. She told the detective, "He pulled the table out, undid his pants. I had a skirt on and I said, 'No, what are you doing'." She went on to tell police that, "I was pushing him off and screaming." That was not what Rick Pitino told police. He admitted that they did have sex at Porcini, but called it consensual. In the police reports detectives said Pitino told them, "Sypher started coming on to him pretty strong and that they had sex." And that, "She had just gotten out of a relationship and was not on birth control." Thursday, for the first time since the details of this encounter became public, Pitino addressed the community. "I am here today because I've personally apologized to my family every single day," Pitino said. "I want to tell my extended family, which is all of my players, recruits who believe in me, families who have believed in me, that I'm sorry for that indiscretion six years ago." But that indiscretion may have led to a pregnancy a few weeks later. Sypher said she had abortion in Cincinnati, and provided WHAS with those medical documents. Pitino told police that Sypher, "Told him that she was going to have an abortion, and state that she did not have health insurance. He asked how much it would cost. She gave him the figure of $3000, which he gave to her." Karen Sypher, however, told police that Pitino threatened her. That, "When he realized I wanted to keep the baby. He threatened that every one of my children would be in concrete." "There's so much that I want people to know and my time will come and my day will come," Sypher told WHAS. "I just want people to open up their eyes right now and during this long silence." Not long after the incident at Porcini, Sypher met Louisville equipment manager Tim Sypher. The two married and were often at parties and team functions with Pitino. Pitino said, "They often attended the same parties, that they tailgated at football games together, made trips with the basketball team together, and that Sypher even went to his niece's shower." Tim and Karen Sypher had a child together. On the baptism certificate the godparents listed are Kevin and Julie Willard, the son and daughter-in-law of new Louisville assistant head coach, Ralph Willard. "My husband is very close to Kevin and Ralph and they do a lot of... they go to the track quite often, do a lot of betting and golfing together," Sypher said. Karen Cunagin Sypher and Tim Sypher are now getting a divorce. In a statement issued by Tim Sypher back in April, he said, " I am devastated by the bizarre allegations that my estranged wife is making against both Coach Pitino and myself." Both Karen and Tim Sypher were expected in court on Thursday for a custody hearing. A new court date for the extortion hearing has not yet been set. WHAS' Melani Kahn reports.
