Gang Killing Suspects


Nguyen Sentenced 5 - 15 Years

By WKTV News

One of the young men involved in the beating death of a 15-year-old back in December, was back in court today.

It was a quick proceeding with the judge voicing his disappointment with Richie Nguyen, saying that nothing good can come from this and called him the "Poster Child" for why others interested in joining gangs should stay away.

Nguyen was sentenced 5 - 15 years in prison for his involvement in beating Sang Vu as part of a gang ritual.  He seemed remorseful but declined to speak.

Ngyuen is the second of three charged in connection with Sang Vu's death.  Tommy Chourb will be in court tomorrow for his sentencing.
