SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — An attorney representing Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow says the government is withholding information that will prove his client innocent.
Chow is an associated leader of Chinatown who is accused of running an organized-crime enterprise in an FBI sting that also netted State Senator Leland Yee last year.
In an interview Sunday with KPIX 5’s Phil Matier, Curtis Briggs also claimed the court is holding back evidence which implicates several public officials who have, so far, not been indicted on any charges.
“They got a lot more than Leland Yee,” Briggs said. “They have a lot of public officials that committed wrongful acts in this investigation who have not been indicted and they have a gag order on us so we can’t tell you who it is … but by [the Feds’] own admission they didn’t even want to pursue it.”
