BGF member sentenced to 10 years in city jail smuggling

A member of the Black Guerilla Family gang that operated inside the Baltimore City Detention Center was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore. Judge Ellen L. Hollander sentenced Jamar Anderson, 24, of Baltimore, for participating in a racketeering conspiracy that included the smuggling of drugs and contraband inside the jail. In his plea agreement, Anderson, who was in custody at the jail from 2012 to 2013, admitted to being a member of the gang and to arranging to smuggle items into the detention center via guards who received payments. Anderson had sexual relationships with two of the guards. Twenty-four of the 44 defendants charged in the conspiracy have pleaded guilty, including 14 correctional officers.
