Lawsuit By ‘Shrimp Boy’ Chow Attorney Accuses SF Mayor Lee Of Accepting Illegal Campaign Contributions
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee has been hit with a civil lawsuit accusing him of accepting illegal campaign donations from an undercover FBI agent involved in the corruption probe and State Sen. Leland Yee, Raymond ‘Shrimp Boy’ Chow, and 26 other defendants.
A Daly City dentist accused of participating in a conspiracy with indicted state Sen. Leland Yee to import illegal weapons from the Philippines died early Tuesday, his attorney said Wednesday.
The federal judge hearing the organized crime and corruption case involving suspended state Senator Leland Yee and convicted Chinatown gang leader Raymond ‘Shrimp Boy’ Chow on Wednesday denied a request to lift a gag order.
The case against 29 defendants including suspended state Sen. Leland Yee and convicted Chinatown gang leader Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow will have to be split into smaller groups before the case can go to trial.
Suspended state Sen. Leland Yee appeared briefly in federal court in San Francisco Thursday to plead not guilty to a new racketeering charge and 10 corruption and bribery counts in an expanded grand jury indictment.
A man prosecutors accuse of heading a crime syndicate based in San Francisco’s Chinatown pleaded not guilty Wednesday to a new charge of racketeering.
San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee was targeted, but never charged, by the FBI in the same sting operation involving Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow and state Sen. Leland Yee, according to sources in the mayor’s office. KCBS, KPIX5 and Chronicle Insider Phil Matier explains that undercover agents donated to Lee’s campaign.
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.
Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, a Chinatown association leader accused of money laundering and plotting to sell stolen goods, returns to a San Francisco courtroom Thursday morning.
His attorney, Tony Serra, said he was “depressed” by the decision, which he said was based on unsubstantiated claims by the prosecution, and said he plans to appeal.
