HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (AP) — 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 June.

Patty Mitchell with the Orange County district attorney's office says a hearing scheduled Tuesday is now set for June 25.

Prosecutors provided about 40,000 pages in investigative records to defense attorneys before a December hearing. 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.

The North Carolina Secretary of State's office began its investigation in 2010.
