Bedford Man Will Spend Time In Prison For Sexual Assault

Last updated on Tuesday, April 3, 2012

(BLOOMINGTON) — 39-year-old Truong “Kevin” Vu, of Bedford was sentenced to 11 1/2 years in prison on four felony convictions of sexual assault.

Monroe Circuit Judge Mary Ellen Diekhoff on Monday sentenced Vu to 11 1/2 years in prison with four years suspended; he receives credit for 33 days served. He will be on probation for four years.

Under Indiana law, Vu will have to register as a sex offender and will remain on the state's sexual offender registry for the rest of his life.

The incidents happened at Pink Nails, in Bloomington, which Vu owns.

A jury convicted Vu last month on charges of sexual deviate conduct, sexual battery and two counts of criminal confinement. Two women, who were clients at the salon testified against Vu.

One woman told jurors she went to the salon on East Third Street, on her birthday for a discounted pedicure and foot massage. She says Vu picked her up and carried her to a massage table, forced his body onto hers, put his arm around her neck, pulled her pants down and sexually assaulted her. She fled from the shop.

The other victim went to the salon to have her eyebrows waxed. She says Vu started massaging her, would not let her leave and kissed her before she ran from the salon.
