A 52-year-old Slidell businessman who returned home this week after being detained in South Sudan for two months now faces charges filed by the U.S. Justice Department.
Elton "Mark" McCabe has been charged with one count of wire fraud and one count of receiving illegal kickbacks.
McCabe is a former executive of a company that performed work for the U.S. in rebuilding projects in Afghanistan in 2009.
The government alleges that he sought and accepted cash payments of about $53,000 from subcontractors.
