That plea to simple kidnapping and indecent behavior with a juvenile has landed McKinney a five year sentence - five years for each charge to run concurrent. He will also have to register as a tier one sex offender.

McKinney worked a part-time security job at Louisiana College at the time. He was represented by Elbert Guillory. The case was prosecuted by Brian Cespiva. Judge Chris Hazel sentenced him.

The victim's mother tells News Channel 5 that she and her family are happy with the sentence.
