SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Six defendants in a San Francisco money laundering and corruption probe that also led to charges against a state senator have entered guilty pleas to some of the charges.

The six entered the pleas Wednesday to charges of money laundering and trafficking in stolen goods. They had been linked to the Ghee Kung Tong, an organization in San Francisco’s Chinatown that prosecutors say was a racketeering enterprise.

Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, the head of the group, is facing trial in November and has pleaded not guilty to money laundering and other charges.

The FBI’s multi-year investigation of Chow also led to the arrest of California State Sen. Leland Yee. Yee pleaded guilty to racketeering last month.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1ieA69s ) the six people who entered pleas Wednesday are still facing racketeering charges.
