Sen. Leland Yee Due In Federal Court Monday

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – California state Sen. Leland Yee, who’s charged with accepting bribes and coordinating a cash-for-guns scheme, is due in federal court in San Francisco.

Yee is set to appear in court Monday morning, when prosecutors are expected to ask a judge to make security arrangements for Yee, who is free on a $500,000 bond.

Yee was charged last week after an elaborate FBI sting of organized crime in San Francisco’s Chinatown ensnared the Democrat and his political fundraiser Keith Jackson.

A federal complaint claims Yee and Jackson hooked an undercover agent up with an arms trafficker, and traded political favors for cash.

Since his arrest, Yee has dropped his campaign for California secretary of state, and he was suspended by the state Senate.
