A Garden Grove man accused of using a Tustin-based trucking company to receive what investigators said was a fraudulent $149,000 loan pleaded guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor and was immediately sentenced to 16 days in jail and ordered to do 200 hours of community service.

Jimmy Khue Nguyen, 50, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of unauthorized use of personal identifying information. As part of the plea bargain, multiple felony charges of grand theft and money laundering were dismissed.

Nguyen applied for a Small Business Administration Loan in 2020 for $150,000, fraudulently using trucking company JPI Majestic Inc., Irvine Police Department investigator Sarah Voigt said in a court filing.
