HILLSBOROUGH, North Carolina — The next hearing for five people charged with violating North Carolina's sports agent law by providing benefits to former Tar Heels football players has been delayed until July.

Orange County district attorney Jim Woodall says the hearing is now set for the week of July 23. It was scheduled for April, then pushed back to this week before being delayed again.

Prosecutors have provided tens of thousands of investigative records to defense attorneys for review. It's unclear when the case could reach a trial.

A grand jury indicted the defendants Sept. 30 for violating the state's Uniform Athlete Agent Act by providing benefits to former players Marvin Austin, Greg Little and Robert Quinn in 2010. The defendants include a Georgia-based sports agent and a former UNC tutor.
