Jail Worker Expected to Plead Guilty in Ronnie White Case

GREENBELT, Md.— A Maryland jail worker accused of failing to seek medical attention for an inmate found hanging by a sheet while in custody is expected to plead guilty in the case.

The Washington Examiner (http://bit.ly/137ZfFI) reports 49-year-old Anthony McIntosh is expected Friday in federal court in Greenbelt. The hearing is a rearraignment, which generally means the person will plead guilty to some or all charges.

McIntosh was working at the Prince George’s County jail in June 2008, when he found 19-year-old Ronnie White hanging from a sheet in his cell. White had been charged with running over and killing a county police officer with a stolen car.

McIntosh was charged with two counts of destruction, alteration or falsification of records in a federal investigation. His trial was scheduled for next week.
