Even as the premise of a television drama, the whole thing would be a little far-fetched. Yet somehow, this is real life. The incarcerated gang leader who allegedly controlled the Baltimore City Detention Center and fathered children with four corrections officers, will testify against the eight defendants who are left after 35 of those charged in the scandal pleaded guilty.
As part of Black Guerrilla Family leader Tavon White’s plea deal, he will technically get 12 years for his role in the corruption, but he will serve that sentence concurrently with the 20 years he’s already serving for an attempted murder conviction.
Standing trial are five corrections officers, two inmates, and a kitchen employee.
I can only imagine what it must be like for these eight defendants, who may get convicted with the help of the very person who allegedly instigated and dictated the entire corrupt operation.
