COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Hearings are scheduled for two different federal courtrooms as part of a public corruption case involving South Carolina State University.
The first hearing Thursday is scheduled for 11 a.m. in Charleston. Another hearing is slated for 2:30 p.m. in Columbia.
Authorities gave no details on what might be involved in the case, but allegations of illegal activity have swirled around the Orangeburg school for over a year.
In February, the university fired eight administrators for mismanagement as an attorney working with the school said there were accusations of criminal misconduct surrounding the dismissals. The university president stepped down a month later.
The school hired Reggie Lloyd, a former U.S. Attorney and State Law Enforcement Division chief, to do an internal investigation, but that work was never completed.
