U.S. District Judge Sue E. Myerscough also ordered McCoy to six months of home confinement upon his release.

He was accused of participating in a scheme involving grants to a nonprofit called We Are Our Brother's Keeper run by his sister, Regina R. Evans, and her husband, Ronald.

Regina Evans, the former top police official in Country Club Hills, was sentenced in May to five years in prison. Ronald Evans also has pleaded guilty and faces sentencing on July 11.
