Hearing Postponed For ‘Shrimp Boy’ Chow In Corruption Case Involving State Sen. Leland Yee
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A hearing for Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, a Chinatown association leader accused of money laundering and plotting to sell stolen goods, has been delayed until August 7, according to his attorney, Tony Serra.
Chow is also accused of money laundering and plotting to sell stolen goods as the “dragonhead” or leader of the Chee Kung Tong, an organization infiltrated by FBI agents posing as Mafioso that led them to discover a wide range of criminal activity by 29 defendants, including suspended state Sen. Leland Yee and former San Francisco school board president Keith Jackson.
Yee and Chow may be working on plea deals behind the scenes, according to legal analyst Peter Keane.
“The characters who are being caught in the net , they now are giving information, some of them are trying to buy their way out,” Keane said. “There’s probably going to be a quite a number of other people still to come.”
Chow remains in Santa Rita Jail in Dublin. His lawyer may try to push for bail again as he has been unsuccessful in the past.
