In this March 2011 photo, Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, center, poses with state Senator Leland Yee, right, and state Assembly member Fiona Ma, left, at the Chee Kung Tong spring banquet in San Francisco. Investigators say Chow is the leader and the dragonhead of one of the most powerful Asian gangs in North America. Chow's gang is said to have lured state Sen. Leland Yee into its clutches through money and campaign contributions in exchange for legislative help, as Yee sought to build his campaign coffers to run for California secretary of state. Born in Hong Kong in 1960, Chow came to the United States at 16 and was reportedly nicknamed "Shrimp Boy" by his grandmother, in part due to his small stature. (AP Photo/Sing Tao Daily)
