More compelling testimony was presented on the stand Thursday during the fourth day of trial against Jonathan Pinson.

Pinson is the former Board Chair at South Carolina State University and has been indicted on 52 charges including wire fraud.

Tony Williams testified that he was involved in a scheme to move a Georgia Diaper Facility to Marion County.

Williams says he and Pinson created a company called Supremes LLC along with a few others and secured a $1 million loan for the project.

During his testimony, Williams says the men created a false invoice containing the names of non-existent employees and instead split the money, with some going to him, Pinson, Lance Wright and Phil Mims. Williams, Mims and Wright have all plead guilty to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and mail fraud for their involvement.

The money went into an account called the Noel Group, and prosecutors showed a check from that group going to Williams in the amount of $10,000 dollars -- the check's signer was Jonathan Pinson.

Prosecutors will call Williams back to the stand on Friday and say they expect his testimony to be lengthy because of his involvement.
