Two Orange County residents visiting Vietnam last year were convicted this week by a Vietnamese court of laundering money by using fraudulent credit cards, officials said Tuesday. Le Cong Dang, 36, of Placentia was sentenced to 12 years in a Vietnamese prison. Vuong Vi Cam, 35, of Westminster was sentenced to 10 years. The Ho Chi Minh City People's Court found both men guilty Saturday of obtaining Vietnamese currency with fraudulent credit cards, U.S. State Department officials said.

A 65-year-old Florida man who deserted from Camp Pendleton Marine base in 1965 rather than go to Vietnam is being held at the brig at Camp Lejeune, N.C., after having been turned over to the Marine Corps in December. No court date has been set for the desertion case, a Marine Corps spokesman said Friday. Jerry Texiero, who has lived under the name Gerome Conti, came to the attention of the Marine Corps' "absentee collection center" after an FBI fingerprint match discovered the desertion charge.

Wading through the rice paddies and jungles of Vietnam, Michael Raymond Johnson was a smart soldier who served his country well, a defense witness testified about the convicted killer Monday. "He was a good worker in the best section we had," said William L. Clark, who served as Johnson's executive officer in Vietnam in 1966 and 1967. "We never had any problem with him."
