HILLSBOROUGH, NORTH CAROLINA- A former professor at the University of North Carolina now faces a criminal charge in the case of an academic scandal involving athletes.

Julius Nyang'Oro was indicted on one count of obtaining property by false pretenses. It is a felony.

He resigned in 2011 during an investigation into grades awarded to North Carolina athletes for no-show classes that required little work.

He was chairman of the Department of African and Afro-American Studies.

The Orange County District Attorney says the charge comes involving a summer course Nyang'Oro was paid $12,000 to teach but the university says he didn't hold classes.

The charge carries up to 10-months in prison and another person is expected to be indicted next month.
