Prisoner Had Five Kids with Four Prison Guards While Incarcerated; 13 Guards Indicted
Thirteen female correctional officers in the state Maryland are being accused of helping inmates with drug trafficking and money laundering. All 13 guards were charged by the US Attorney’s Office in federal court, and have been accused of smuggling cell phones, prescription pills and other contraband into the prison.
The alleged gang leader, Tavon White (pictured), was the center of attention during the investigation. Police say that he was sleeping with at least four of the prison guards at the same time, fathering five kids since he was incarcerated in 2009. White seemed to feel that the jail belonged to him, and that anyone who disagreed with him would be severely punished.
"This is my jail. You understand that? I’m dead serious. I make every final call in this jail," he allegedly said during one phone call. During another call, White was recorded when he talked about how he earned just $16,000 during a slow month.
The indictment also lists seven inmates as co-conspirators, shining a light on a highly-organized criminal enterprise.
