At an April 23 press con­fer­ence, the lat­est Black Guer­rilla Fam­ily (BGF) prison gang rack­e­teer­ing indict­ment was announced, detail­ing charges against 25 defen­dants (a roster including detail background information on each is here), including 13 Mary­land cor­rec­tional offi­cers (COs) who allegedly facil­i­tated the gang’s oper­a­tional takeover of two Bal­ti­more deten­tion facil­i­ties.
