Skip to comments.13 (female) corrections officers indicted in Md., accused of aiding gang’s drug scheme
Posted on 04/24/2013 7:15:25 AM PDT by robowombat
More than a dozen Maryland state prison guards helped a dangerous national gang operate a drug-trafficking and money-laundering scheme from behind bars that involved cash payments, sex and access to fancy cars, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.
Thirteen female corrections officers essentially handed over control of a Baltimore jail to gang leaders, prosecutors said. The officers were charged Tuesday in a federal racketeering indictment.
The indictment described a jailhouse seemingly out of control. Four corrections officers became pregnant by one inmate. Two of them got tattoos of the inmates first name, Tavon one on her neck, the other on a wrist.
The guards allegedly helped leaders of the Black Guerilla Family run their criminal enterprise in jail by smuggling cellphones, prescription pills and other contraband in their underwear, shoes and hair. One gang leader allegedly used proceeds to buy luxury cars, including a Mercedes-Benz and a BMW, which he allowed some of the officers to drive.
The inmates literally took over the asylum, and the detention centers became safe havens for BGF, said FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen E. Vogt, using shorthand for the prison gangs name.

"At the center of the investigation was an alleged leader of the Black Guerilla Family, Tavon White, who prosecutors said fathered five children with four of the corrections officers Jennifer Owens, 31, of Randallstown; Katera Stevenson, 24, of Baltimore; Chania Brooks, 27, of Baltimore; and Tiffany Linder, 27, of Baltimore since his incarceration on attempted murder charges in 2009."
Gang leaders also relied on other inmates, known as working men, whose jobs throughout the prison gave them greater flexibility to pick up and deliver contraband. Inmates then paid for the drugs and cellphones using 14-digit numbers from prepaid debit cards that had also been smuggled into the prisons.
"Within Marylands detention facilities, staff workers are generally free to move within their assigned areas, according to department spokesman Rick Binetti. With identification, they can often move freely outside of their assigned locations.
In one instance, prosecutors described Officer Jasmin Jones allegedly standing guard outside a closet while Officer Kimberly Dennis had sex with inmate Derius Duncan."
Bawlmer. Why am I not surprised.
>>>From the People’s Republic of Maryland where it is illegal to privately sell a firearm.<<<
Things like that are pretty weird even by standards of People’s Republics.
Sounds more like Banana Republic.
Prison guards in Georgia start at around $17-19,000 per year.
Sneaking in just one cell phone can get you $300-500 bucks.
It’s a messed up system.
Good movie material!
Another example of the need for the Second Amendment—government agents behaving badly.
Four corrections officers became pregnant by one inmate.
"Aw, heck, your honor! You just can't sentence me to jail: I've got to stay home to take care of this poor little baby!"
Hogan’s Hero’s but in a real bad way. And no one is ashamed...extremely sad commentary on the state of Maryland and the low information voters.
Pretty much the standard for the Obama Administration too. And these females are prized voters too!
"A lot of times, they become smitten with the inmates. [The inmates] talk really sweet and say really nice things, and the COs fall for them. You need to have a bunch of rough, ugly men.
Oh no you di'nt.
Seriously, people were basically saying this about 30 years ago.
They had to settle for rough ugly women.
all holders peeps and probably all gang ho’s before hiring as affirmative action
