Woods faces an April 9 trial with co-defendants Randell Shelton Jr. and Oren Paris III. The government says Paris paid kickbacks through Shelton to Woods and a now-former state representative in return for state grants to Ecclesia College. The newspaper reported Thursday that Shelton and Paris own a shingle-recycling business headquartered at an address owned by Ecclesia College.
Shelton's lawyer says the recycling account was never funded and that any company could have applied for its benefits.
