Former NC State Chancellor Goes Before Grand Jury

The former chancellor of North Carolina State University has ended testimony before a federal grand jury in Raleigh that is seeking details about a job given to former first lady Mary Easley.

James Oblinger would not discuss his testimony when he left the building about four hours after he entered Wednesday.

Oblinger was subpoenaed last month, with federal investigators requesting access to all documents related to Easley's hiring and benefits.

Oblinger resigned last week as the university released e-mails showing that he had played a role in Easley's hiring. He said he did not recall his contribution until reading the e-mails and said the hiring involved no impropriety and no coercion.
