Former NBCI Inmate Sentenced In High Profile Case

February 9th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The gang member who prosecutors say dealt drugs and impregnated four guards while incarcerated at a Baltimore jail was sentenced on Monday.

A federal judge sentenced Tavon "Bulldog" White to 12 years in federal prison for his role in the city jail corruption case. He got a reduction from a 20-year maximum sentence for cooperating.

Prosecutors say Tavon White oversaw a drug smuggling operation inside the Baltimore City Detention Center and used contraband cellphones to direct gang activity on the streets. 

White recently testified against five corrections officers, a kitchen worker and two inmates who authorities say helped White run the operation. Last week, five of them were found guilty in the scheme, while three were acquitted after a two-month trial. 

White testified as part of a plea deal for a reduced sentence. The 37-year-old has pleaded guilty to participating in the racketeering conspiracy. 

White had been held for a time in 2013 at the North Branch Correctional Institution in Cresaptown before a federal judge ordered he be held out of state.
