Tavon White, the leader of the Black Guerrilla Family who impregnated four guards inside of the Baltimore City Detention Center, pleaded guilty to federal racketeering conspiracy charges, reports The Huffington Post.
White, nicknamed “Bulldog,” admitted to smuggling drugs and phones inside of the jail. During a “slow month,” he claimed he earned more than $15,000 with the assistance of a “harem of correctional officers,” reports the Baltimore City Paper.
Of the six correctional officers, 4 gave birth to White’s children, and 2 tattooed his name on their body — one on the neck and other other on the wrist.
According to an FBI release, the corruption was deep and pervasive.
Read from FBI release below:
A federal grand jury returned a racketeering indictment charging 25 individuals, including 13 correctional officers with the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, for conspiring to run operations of the Black Guerilla Family (BGF) gang inside correctional facilities. All 25 defendants also are charged with conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute drugs, and 20 of the defendants are charged with money laundering conspiracy.
“Correctional officers were in bed with BGF inmates, in violation of the first principle of prison management,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. “Preventing prison corruption requires intensive screening at prison entrances and punishment for employees who consort with inmates or bring cell phones and drugs into correctional facilities.”
