Gang leader Tavon White’s trial testimony describes rise to power at Baltimore jail

December 1 at 10:38 PM

Black-Guerrilla-FamilyThe former leader of the Black Guerrilla Family at the Baltimore City Detention Center spoke publicly for the first time Monday from the witness stand, describing his unlikely rise to power and the gang’s inner workings.

Tavon White, 37, has admitted heading a racketeering conspiracy as part of a plea deal in which he also agreed to testify against the eight remaining defendants — inmates and corrections staff members — charged in the case.

White told Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Harding that when he entered the city jail in 2009 on an attempted-murder charge, his chief goals were to “make money” and “run the jail, pretty much.”

“I wasn’t trying to be some flunky,” White testified.

Prosecutors allege that the defendants on trial — two inmates, five corrections officers and a kitchen worker — were part of a conspiracy that involved drug dealing, extortion and witness intimidation.

 At the center of the allegations is White, who prosecutors have said made four corrections officers pregnant. The revelations have received national attention.
