COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A former trustee at South Carolina State University accused of using his influence in exchange for a Porsche and other favors wants the government to share evidence against him.

Jonathan Pinson says in court documents filed Friday that he wants federal prosecutors to be required to disclose the names of any confidential informants they want to call at his trial.

Pinson also wants to see any potential evidence, including statements from co-defendants and any surveillance video or other recordings.

Pinson was indicted earlier this month in a public corruption investigation involving a proposed land deal at the university.

The former police chief at the university in Orangeburg, Michael Bartley, pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge in connection with the investigation.

Authorities have said more indictments are expected.
