Guilty plea seen in prison gang case
A man accused of running the Baltimore operation of the notorious Black Guerrilla Family prison gang plans to plead guilty Tuesday to a drug conspiracy charge.
Todd Duncan is scheduled for a rearraignment Tuesday morning in U.S. District Court. Duncan's attorney, Robert Waldman, says his client will enter a guilty plea.
Waldman says he and prosecutors will request a 15-year sentence as part of the plea deal.
Duncan was one of 14 alleged BGF members indicted on a racketeering charge, which carries a possible life sentence. The plea deal allows him to avoid trial on that charge.
Court documents show Duncan was dealing drugs and recruiting gang members while working for a city-funded nonprofit intended to steer young people away from gangs and violence.
