Maryland gang member, Tavon White, is accused of running a scheme to smuggle contraband into the prison by persuading 13 female prison guards from behind bars. But for four of those women, that persuasion included getting it in…and eventually getting pregnant.

A federal indictment says Tavon White has been charged in the plot to smuggle drugs, cell phones and other contraband into the Baltimore jail and other corrections facilities, along with the prison guards, six of his fellow inmates and five others with gang ties who allegedly operated outside the jails.

The indictment also says the ring involved sex between the inmates and guards, which led to four of the officers becoming pregnant by White, the leader of a jailhouse gang called the Black Guerrilla Family.

The gang members and the corrections officers have been charged with conspiracy, drug possession and distribution and money laundering.
