When White was relocated, Loney became the commander of one of two BGF regimes inside the prison. He answered only to White, the release states.
"Throughout 2011 to 2013, Loney often directed the smuggling of contraband into BCDC by BGF members and associates, especially through the services of correctional officers," the release states. "Loney became involved in sexual relationships with correctional officers, including Kirkland.
"Kirkland frequently smuggled contraband, including marijuana and prescription pills, into BCDC on behalf of Loney," the release continued. "Kirkland also helped other correctional officers, such as Jennifer Owens, smuggle drugs into BCDC for other BGF inmates such as Tavon White ."
White is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 20, 2014 at 10 a.m.
From the release:
The case arose from the efforts of the Maryland Prison Task Force, a group of local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and prosecutors that met regularly for more than two years and generated recommendations to reform prison procedures. The investigation is continuing.
