80 indicted for drug trafficking in Maryland prison


PUBLISHED Wed, October 05, 2016 - 12:53pm EDT


Eighty people are facing federal indictments for suspected drug trafficking at a Maryland prison, prosecutors said on Wednesday. The suspects were charged in two indictments for racketeering and drug conspiracies at the prison, the U.S. Attorney's Office for Maryland said in a brief statement. The prison was not named. Twenty-four people, including guards, were indicted in 2009 for prison-related drug dealing, and 44 people were charged in 2013 for corruption at Baltimore's jail. Attorney for Maryland Rod Rosenstein and other federal and state officials have scheduled a news conference later on Wednesday in Baltimore to discuss the indictments.
