Second Indictment In UNC Football Scandal To Be Unsealed
HILLSBOROUGH – The second indictment of five in the UNC football scandal will be unsealed Wednesday.
Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall says one of the remaining four indicted is scheduled to turn him- or herself in. That person’s first court appearance is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. in Hillsborough.
He says between the time of the surrender and the court appearance, the additional indictments will be made public because of their connection to the person surrendering.
Jennifer Lauren Wiley Thompson appeared in court Thursday for her first appearance on charges of athlete-agent inducement, which breaks the Uniformed Agent Act. Those charges are the first in the history of the law that can be found, according to Woodall.
Thompson is alleged to have provided money and two round-trip plane tickets to former UNC football player Greg Littler in order to get him to sign a contract with an agent. If she’s found guilty, Thompson could face a maximum prison sentence of 15 months and up to a $25,000 fine.
