 HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (AP) - A former tutor who worked with Tar Heels football players has been charged with violating the state's sports agent laws.
An unsealed indictment states that a grand jury indicted Jennifer Wiley Thompson with four counts of providing benefits to former UNC football player Greg Little to help Georgia-based agent Terry Watson to sign Little. Thompson was arrested Thursday morning and released on a $15,000 secured bond.
The Secretary of State's office launched its investigation in 2010, shortly after the NCAA started looking into improper benefits and academic misconduct in the program. Thompson, now married, was connected to several academic violations.
The grand jury said Thompson provided Little with airline tickets and cash, and received a package from Watson containing $2,000 in cash for Little, now with the Cleveland Browns.
