While it won’t make Auburn fans feel any better, former Auburn assistant coach Chuck Person likely will rest a little easier on Thursday night.
According to AL.com’s James Crepea, a superseding indictment following the original charges against Person was filed on Thursday, but it doesn’t appear there is much new information.
The superseding indictment does not include additional charges or details not previously disclosed in the case, but it does spell out the government’s position on each charge and the wire fraud charge specifically was a subject of argument between the government and Person’s lawyers.
Yahoo’s team of writers reported last month that the indictment was coming with new information, but it appears that new information isn’t very damning.
Person was indicted in September and arrested by the FBI on conspiracy and fraud charges. He is alleged to have accepted up to $91,500 to send Auburn players to a certain agent in Atlanta, Rashan Michel, to ensure they would sign with him when turning professional. His wife also filed for divorce following the charges.
