BALTIMORE (WJZ) — An inmate accused of leading a jailhouse gang was granted permission to be moved from the Maryland Prison System to federal custody.

It was decided Friday in federal court.

Tavon White’s lawyer has said the conditions of his confinement at a state prison in Cumberland made it hard for him to prepare a defense.

He said it was nearly impossible to share documents with his client when they were communicating through glass.

White was one of 25 people indicted in a contraband smuggling conspiracy at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

The indictment states White impregnated multiple corrections officers.

The exact federal prison facility will not be released.
