Fulton County Deputy Akeiba Stanley Arrested Smuggling Contraband
Fulton County Sheriff's Office

Fulton County is on the IKYFL Summer Jam screen again! This time former deputy Akeiba Stanley was arrested after she tried to smuggle contraband to a defendant in the Young Slime Life (YSL) RICO trial. 

Akeiba is accused of trying to bring contraband to Christian Eppinger with the help of one of his family members, according to the sheriff’s office. 

And if you’re wondering…YES…another warrant accused Akeiba Stanley of having an “inappropriate relationship” with Christian. 

The sheriff’s office said Akeiba visited Eppinger’s cell and communicated with him on an illegal phone. 

They every exchanged messages via Instagram, according to the warrants. 

Prior to joining the sheriff’s office, Akeiba Stanley was an officer at the Atlanta Police Department from 2016 to 2018.

She was fired from the department after they investigated three complaints within a 30-day span.

Following her termination from APD, Akeiba’s Peace Officer Standards and Training Council certification were put on probation for 12 months in April 2020, POST records indicate.

She was ordered to complete a six-month ethics and professionalism course at her own expense back in 2020.

Akeiba Stanley just began working at the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office in October of 2022. 

FCSO fired Akeiba after she was caught trying to smuggle contraband. 

Fulton County Sheriff Patrick “Pat” Labat released the following statement Friday afternoon regarding Stanley’s arrest. In part, the statement reads:

Her reckless actions endangered the safety of citizens, staff, and employees at the Fulton County Courthouse and put other inmates in jeopardy.

To violate your sworn oath in such a brazen way that directly puts the life and safety of others at risk is unconscionable.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we are all responsible for our actions.  If you break the law, you will be held accountable.  

The actions of this one individual are certainly not a reflection of the men and women of the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office who show up to work each and every day and conduct their duties with professionalism, honor, and integrity.

Akeiba Stanley is currently being held at the Fulton County Jail on the following charges:

  • Conspiracy to commit a felony (felony)
  • Hindering apprehension or punishment of a criminal (felony)
  • Violation of oath by a public officer (felony)
  • Reckless conduct (misdemeanor)

Well, maybe Akeiba and Christian Eppinger can be pen pals. 

Watch the news report below.

For the life of me, I will never understand why women will risk their GOOD jobs trying to cater to a criminal.
