On Wednesday (Feb. l6th) LawReader on the scene reporter Becky Kinman , spotted future federal prison inmate Karen Sypher in Dillard’s shoe department in Louisville. Strangely Ms. Sypher was purchasing five pairs of fancy new shoes.
It would seem to us that she should be selling her fancy shoes or trading them for some sneakers or sandals. We don’t know of any prison that allows spiked heels for inmates.
Sypher was convicted of extortion of UofL Basketball coach Rick Pitino, is scheduled to be sentenced by a Federal judge on Friday Feb. 18th.
Criminal-defense experts say she could be imprisoned for as little as five years or as many as 10, depending on how much U.S. District Judge Charles R. Simpson III determines she was trying to extract from the University of Louisville coach.
