Viet Tran was arrested at a local restaurant in Lincoln Monday night and was taken by police to the Diagnostic and Evaluation Center (DEC).
Tran began serving his sentence in April 2012. He is serving a sentence of 13-26-years for multiple convictions out of Lancaster County that include unauthorized use of a financial transaction device, drug charges, theft by deception and disturbing the peace. He has a parole hearing scheduled for December 1, 2020.
