State Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) and 19 other defendants appeared in court (external - login to view) this afternoon to confront charges against them ranging from racketeering, gun-trafficking, and murder for hire. The defendants -- including Keith Jackson (external - login to view), a San Francisco political consultant, and Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, a longtime Chinatown gangster -- all arrived in civilian clothes while shackled at the wrist and waist.

By 3:30 p.m., only 12 of the defendants, including Jackson and Chow, had appeared before the judge to hear the charges against them. Yee, who as a legislator cracked down on guns (external - login to view), is now being charged with gun trafficking himself.
