Young Thug & Gunna Named In 56-Count Indictment

Published

on

Rappers Young Thug and Gunna have been named in a 56-count indictment filed Monday, May 9, in Fulton County, Georgia.

According to WSBTV Reporter Michael Seiden, the 56-count indictment includes 28 other Young Slime Life (YSL) members on numerous charges including “murder, armed robbery, and participation in criminal street gang activity.”

Young Thug, born Jeffery Lamar Williams, has been taken into custody and is being held at Fulton County Jail. Williams is being charged with conspiracy to violate the racketeer-influenced and corrupt organizations act (RICO) and participation in criminal street gang activity, while Gunna, born Sergio Giavanni Kitchens, is being charged with one count of conspiring to violate RICO.

Prosecutors have alleged that two associates of YSL, CHRISTIAN EPPINGER and ANTONIO SUMLIN, worked to get permission from Young Thug to allegedly make a 2nd attempt to murder YFN Lucci, while he’s jailed in Fulton County.

In March, it was reported that YFN Lucci was stabbed by another inmate while on a video call with someone from the outside. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Lucci stated that there was a bounty on his head and he would voluntarily go into 24-hour confinement as he feared his life.

YFN Lucci, born  Rayshawn Bennett,  has been in custody since 2021 after he was named in a 105-count indictment where he is charged with racketeering, violating the state’s anti-gang law, felony murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

“The YFN studio located on West Peachtree Street in Atlanta is a central point for the group and a notorious stronghold. YFN has continued to attract additional associates as Bennett gained notoriety,” according to the indictment.
