Prostitute May Have Used Underaged Daughters In Louisville Basketball Scandal
BY: John “Hennry” Harris
Katina Powell, 43, has written a book called “Breaking Cardinal Rules” which was to serve as an expose of the University of Louisville‘s basketball program for hiring her and other escorts to have sex with players, recruits and the recruits guardians.
However, in her attempt to gain money and notoriety with her book she also admitted using her two daughters, ages 15 and 17, to service the athletes with sex too.
Powell now finds herself in danger of being prosecuted for human trafficking or complicity to rape if an investigation finds evidence proving her story of using her underage daughters for prostitution.
Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine says that her written admissions alone would not subject her to charges, but if his office receives “credible evidence of criminal activity involving minor children, we will vigorously prosecute those responsible for those crimes.”
Powell and co-author Dick Cady write in the book she “might at one point work with her daughters peddling sex – and take them to church the next day.”
She also writes: “People may think that I expose my kids. But … they enjoy themselves, they meet new people. … For those who have a problem with it, kiss my —.”
According to the book, former University of Louisville player and director of operations, Andre McGee, paid Powell around $10,000 to provide prostitutes and dancers for 22 parties from 2010-2014 to entertain players and recruits.
McGee is also in danger of being prosecuted as an accomplice. He is currently is an assistant coach at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, where he has been placed on administrative leave.
University of Louisville head basketball coach Rick Pitino has been implicated by Powell as to being aware of the prostitution, but McGee’s lawyer has said that he was unaware.
Attorney Kent Wicker has revealed that if the scandal is investigated as a crime, a grand jury could subpoena players and recruits and force them to testify and demand copies of interviews and other records compiled by the lead investigator.
“It is not a good thing for the university or basketball team if felonies were committed in its dormitory,” Wicker said.
Powell admits that her motive for writing the book was money, but in her attempt to expose the university it looks like she has opened up a worm hole for herself and McGee, which could land them both in jail for 10-20 years.
