HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. -

A fourth person has been served in the University of North Carolina football investigation.

A first appearance is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in an Orange County courtroom, Orange District Attorney Jim Woodall said Monday. The grand jury indictment is expected to be unsealed that day.

The person was charged out of state and the name has not been released.

Already charged are former tutor Jennifer Wiley Thompson, Georgia sports agent Terry Watson and Georgia real estate agent Patrick Jones.

Thompson is charged with providing Little with a round-trip airline ticket worth $579.50 to travel from North Carolina to Florida as part of an effort to get Little to sign with agent Terry Watson of Georgia. She is also charged with giving him $150 in cash and receiving a package from Watson containing $2,000 in cash for Little.

Watson is charged with 13 counts of providing cash or accommodations to three former Carolina stars and one charge of obstruction of justice.

Jones is charged with providing money to former UNC star Robert Quinn.
