SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Two key defendants in the wide-ranging conspiracy case involving politics, cash and guns entered pleas in federal court Tuesday. Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow pleaded not guilty to all charges against him including money laundering.
The pleas come a week after suspended State Senator Leland Yee entered his plea of not guilty in the same case. Chow, 54, and an admitted gang leader with the Chee Kung Tong organization is a central figure in this case.
“We don’t see that he’s committed any crime whatsoever within the complaint and the way they’ve grouped it together with a large amount of defendants where he’s hardly even related,” said his attorney Curtis Briggs.
