Placeholder Image
A man charged with driving with a license under an assumed name, which lawmen believe had something to do with his violating the sexual registration law, has been sentenced for criminal impersonation.The suspect, Dieu Cong Pham, 31, aka Thoi The Ngyen, was ordered to serve seven days of a six-month sentence and perform 32 hours public service work for criminal impersonation. The more serious charge of violating the sexual offender registration law was dismissed with the court ordering the issue between Tennessee and his former state of Minnesota needs to be resolved.Pham was arrested last year for driving on a suspended license following a traffic stop by sheriff’s deputy Jason Richardson. It was then the suspect reportedly claimed his alias of Ngyen was his real name and he was booked under that name.
