(CBS/AP) BALTIMORE - In the four years that alleged jailhouse gang leader Tavon White has been incarcerated awaiting trial on an attempted murder charge, he allegedly impregnated four female guards and got several others to help him smuggle drugs into the jail, reports CBS Baltimore.

Authorities say White was the leader of a jailhouse gang called the Black Guerrilla Family that prosecutors say plotted to smuggle marijuana, prescription pills, cell phones and other contraband into the Baltimore Jail. 

Thirteen female correctional officers, seven inmates and five others have been charged with conspiracy, drug possession and distribution and money laundering in the scheme.

White allegedly gave expensive gifts to the four women, including luxury cars and a diamond ring to one of them. Court documents state that one of the women had "Tavon" tattooed on her neck and another had "Tavon" tattooed on her wrist, according to CBS Baltimore.

A telephone call seeking comment from White's attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday.
