The U.S. Department of Justice working with a federal grand jury in Southern California has issued a superseding indictment in the case of the Little Saigon businessman accused of operating a loan-sharking operation with the assistance of a Westminster police officer.
Last August, FBI agents arrested officer Anthony Duong Donner and businessman Kevin Khanh Tuan Do. The two men pleaded not guilty to the original two-count indictment.
This week, federal prosecutors Brett A. Sagel and Joseph T. McNally won an additional, grand jury approved count against Do: Lying to FBI agents in hopes of thwarting their investigation.
According to the superseding indictment, Do lied when he told agents that he hadn’t run a loan-sharking business and that he’d never used Donner as his enforcer/assistant in the scheme.
It is a federal offense to lie to an FBI agent.
Both men are free from custody on bond.
