NEW ORLEANS -- A Slidell businessman is scheduled to be sentenced for his role in a kickback scheme.

In May 53-year-old Elton McCabe pleaded guilty to one charge of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

McCabe has agreed to forfeit the $60,000 authorities say he got from the scheme.

He faces up to five years in prison.

Last fall, McCabe was detained in South Sudan on a kidnapping charge, but he was later released.
