Inmates used sex to run Baltimore jail, federal officials say

In all, 24 correctional officers were found guilty, including four women impregnated by an inmate.

(CNN) – Between the sex, raw meat and oil paintings, what went down at Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, NY, sounds more like the fall of Rome than upstate New York. But it happened.

And as outlandish and apparently out-of-control as it was, the one thing it was not is unique. Another story comes from a different lock-up where the inmates essentially took over.

Before a sweeping investigation into the Baltimore City Detention Center, the inmates seemed to be running the place. According to federal authorities, a deadly gang called the Black Guerilla Family lorded over an empire of drugs and other contraband in the jail, all at the direction of their leader, inmate Tavon White.

“Tavon White is wiretapped as part of the investigation and there’s a quote that is kind of stood out where he said ‘this is my jail,’ something along the lines of his word is law,” said Ian Duncan of The Baltimore Sun.

So how was White and his gang able to gain such a stronghold on the entire system? Largely through seducing its female correctional officers into sexual relationships. According to the government, White even allegedly fathered five children with four different officers all while behind bars.

“The sexual dynamic of the corruption was really important. And what the FBI thinks was that was a way to establish power over these women, to build these relationships, to really strengthen these bonds. They really had a playbook to use sex as a way to insure their dominance,” Duncan said.

According to the government, Tiffany Linder, seen eight months into her pregnancy, was one of those guards. She got into an argument with another guard, who was also pregnant with White’s baby.
