WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- A construction contractor has been sentenced to two years probation after pleading guilty to federal conspiracy charges in a kickback scheme involving the former town manager of Camden.

A judge also ordered William P. Mahon this week to pay $204,000 in restitution. Mahon faced a maximum of 20 years in prison.

Mahon and former Camden town manager James Plumley III pleaded guilty in August to conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

Prosecutors said Plumley used his position at a company called Roofing Resources Inc. to steer roofing repair contracts for state-owned facilities to Mahon's company. Mahon would inflate his project bids, then steer kickbacks to Plumley.

In their plea agreements, the two men agreed to repay $204,000 to the state Division of Facilities Management.

Plumley will be sentenced in February.
