Katina Powell indicted on theft charges

The “escort queen” who single-handedly took down the Louisville basketball program is in the news yet again.

Katina Powell has been indicted by a grand jury on criminal possession of a forged instrument and theft by deception charges.

According to the arrest citation, Powell is alleged to have stolen blank checks totaling $2,900 and attempting to cash them at a liquor store. The reported victim, Thomas Tyre, has since dropped the charges.

“I want her in my life,” Tyre told the Courier Journal in May. “I’m sad about what happened.”

The arrest occurred on May 17, where she was seen wearing a Louisville football shirt in her mugshot.

Powell was evicted from her home back in April after her daughter reportedly pulled a gun on a man in front of their home back in January. The court deemed Powell was in violation of her lease agreement.

Powell was also arrested in January for allegedly shoplifting a toothbrush from a Walmart in Louisville.

    This crap has no business being on KSR. If it concerned new evidence or allegations about the UofL scandal, I could maybe see it…but this is just sleazy journalism….and a non-story.

      KSR has become a catch all to get clicks and sell advertising. Matt has already sold his sole to greed.

      A non story? Surely your kidding. This is a major story of interest. If you just want to read strictly about sports, there are plenty of places to go.

    This woman is complete trash. Just keep her in jail, she’ll be back in there for something else in a couple weeks anyways.

      So much for innocent until proven guilty. I guess you can predict when the rapture is coming too?

      Agree with cats646. Total trash, a whore(literally) plus whoring her daughters out and now a scumbag thief for the 2nd 3rd 4th or who’s know how many times. How can anyone honestly defend this kind of behavior. It goes on and on with her. If u think she won’t be back in jail for some other skeezy scumbag reason, you’re lying to yourself.

    Can we please stop giving this piece of trash anymore publicity. I understood it when she was exposing UofL, made sense to talk about her, but giving a woman who pimped out her own daughters any publicity outside of that case is buzzfeed level of journalism.

    How could the checks be blank and worth $2,900?

    Strange that she was never indicted on prostitution charges. I mean she confessed. It’s almost like someone didn’t want certain things brought to light.

      She was probably granted immunity to expose the wrong doings of u of l
