HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (AP) — The prosecutor involved in an investigation into whether sports agents broke state law by providing gifts to former Tar Heels football players says he expects another grand jury indictment to be unsealed Wednesday.

Jim Woodall, district attorney for Orange County, said Monday he expects whoever is charged to make their first court appearance in the afternoon. That person would be the fourth charged in the case following an investigation by the North Carolina Secretary of State's office dating to summer 2010.

A Georgia-based sports agent, his longtime associate and an ex-UNC tutor made court appearances last month on charges of violating the state's Uniform Athlete Agents Act. The law requires agents to register with the Secretary of State's office and prohibits offering gifts to entice athletes to sign representation contracts.
