Indictments handed up in UNC football scandal
HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- ABC11 has learned an Orange County grand jury has handed up 5 indictments related to the UNC football scandal.
The indictments are sealed and the names and charges are redacted in court documents ABC11 obtained Tuesday. The documents do show the charges are related to the North Carolina Secretary of State's office.
Officials would not confirm or deny the charges are related to UNC football on the record Tuesday.
As has been previously reported, Jim Woodall, district attorney for Orange County, and the Secretary of State's office have been looking into whether sports agents broke the law by giving gifts to players.
North Carolina law requires agents to register with the Secretary of State's office and prohibits offering gifts to entice athletes to sign representation contracts.
Search warrants in the investigation have focused on Ex-UNC players Greg Little and Marvin Austin who allegedly told investigators an agent provided cash and other benefits.
