HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (AP) — Prosecutors have provided about 40,000 pages in investigative records to attorneys for five people charged with violating the state's sports agent law by providing benefits to former Tar Heels football players in 2010.

During a brief court hearing Tuesday, Orange County district attorney Jim Woodall said prosecutors will provide more records by Feb. 1 to attorneys for the defendants — which include a Georgia-based sports agent and a former UNC tutor.

The next hearing is set for April 29 due to the volume of files, which prosecutors provided on a computer hard disk and 23 CDs.

Joseph B. Cheshire V, attorney for charged ex-tutor Jennifer Wiley Thompson, says she has lost at least three teaching jobs due to the investigation and said she's "never been an agent for anybody."
