The man charged in a plan to blow up a bar in Wrigleyville is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday.

Sami Samir Hassoun was arrested in September 2010, after planting a backpack loaded with what he thought were explosives outside a sports bar on Clark Street.

The device in the bag was given to him by undercover federal agents.

Hassoun pleaded guilty to the plot back in April.

He faces up to 30-years in prison.
