13 officers indicted: ‘Four corrections officers became pregnant by one inmate’

13 officers indicted: ‘Four corrections officers became pregnant by one inmate’, The 13 officers indicted for handing over control of a Baltimore jail to leaders of the Black Guerilla Family allegedly smuggled cellphones, prescription pills, and other contraband in their underwear, shoes, and hair. In return for helping the dangerous national gang to operate a drug-trafficking and money-laundering scheme from behind bars, the 13 female officers received cash payments, intimate favors, and fancy cars, reported The Washington Post on April 23, 2013.

“The indictment described a jailhouse seemingly out of control. Four corrections officers became pregnant by one inmate. Two of them got tattoos of the inmate’s first name, Tavon — one on her neck, the other on a wrist.”

On Tuesday, the indictment of the 13 female officers was unsealed in the U.S. District Court in Baltimore and the 13 officers were charged with federal racketeering.

The Black Guerilla Family was originally founded in California in the 1960s but operates today across the United States. According to the Justice Department, the Black Guerilla Family appeared first in Maryland’s prison system in the 1990s.

Since 2006, the Black Guerilla Family has been the leading gang at the Baltimore City Detention Center according to federal authorities.

From behind prison bars and on the streets of major U.S. cities, the national gang is deeply involved in narcotics trafficking, robbery, assault, homicides, and – as it appears – passing on personal favors.
