The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Court on Friday sentenced Tran Thi Ngoc Trinh, well known as Ngoc Trinh, a 35-year-old Vietnamese lingerie model, to one year of probation for causing social disorder.

Her 37-year-old trainer, Tran Xuan Dong, was sentenced to one year behind bars for causing social disorder and six months for using counterfeit documents.

According to the court, between July and October last year, Trinh and Dong rode motorcycles with a cylinder capacity of 999cc on public roads in Thu Duc City, Ho Chi Minh City although Trinh had no special license that would allow her to legally ride a motorcycle with an engine over 150cc.

While riding the motorcycle, Trinh engaged in offensive and dangerous acts, including kneeling and lying on the vehicle without any protective gear, putting both legs to one side of the vehicle, and letting go of both hands.

She also asked her assistant Nguyen Thi Thuy Kieu, her driver Nguyen Thanh Long, and Tang Duy Khanh, Long’s friend, to use mobile phones and drones to record videos of her stunts.

Trinh later edited these videos and uploaded them to her social media accounts.

The video quickly got huge reactions and comments, sparking public concerns. 

Dong also used fake vehicle registration documents.

The court reached the verdict that Trinh and Dong's stunts had disrupted public order and presented a significant risk to the life and health of others.

However, this is Trinh’s first offense and she showed repentance, so it was unnecessary to put her in jail.

Trinh stated that she accepts the penalty for her violations, citing her limited understanding of the laws as a contributing factor.

She consistently emphasized her commitment to complying with the laws and asserted that she did not intentionally violate them.

Trinh explained that her actions were impulsive and, by the time she recognized her wrongdoings, it was too late, considering this experience a significant lesson for her.

Trinh took the opportunity to apologize to those involved in the case who had supported her, including Dong, Long, Kieu, and Khanh.
