Powell says in the book, "Breaking Cardinal Rules," that she "always knew men wanted her body," and "she liked plenty of sex herself." Powell claims in the book written for her by former Indianapolis Star reporter Dick Cady that she supplied prostitutes and adult entertainers to entertain Louisville basketball players and recruits at 22 parties over a several year period during which a former Louisville player, Andre McGee, was a part of the team's coaching staff. She claims many basketball players only played at Louisville because of the services she provided to them.
The Courier-Journal confirms that Powell has no prior criminal record, although she confesses to committing multiple crimes in her book. Among Powell's shocking confessions are the use of her daughters as prostitutes, one of whom was only 15 years old at the time. Powell also admits to supply marijuana to all three of her daughters, one of whom was found shot to death on September 27, 2008 at a Louisville car wash, along with a 37-year old man. Powell says in her book that she would work with her daughters peddling sex one day and then take to church with her on another day. The newspaper report says Powell's only brush with the law has been with the local public housing agency in Louisville, which has moved to evict her on three separate occasions, including once as recently as last year.
Powell claims she began working as an escort for a now-defunct Louisville escort service, Cheetah's Escorts, although two former employees of the company claimed they had never heard of her. Powell says she has worked with about two dozen women in the business and advertised on the Internet, including Backpage.com. The business she operated went by the name, Flavors Entertainment. Powell says in her book she now works for a company providing cleaning services on-campus at the University of Louisville where she cleans bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms. The Courier-Journal has this bit on whether Powell could face criminal charges for her past criminal acts:
