Adkins Memorial Funeral Home owner owns up to disclosing private photo of woman



In July of 2020, a Pasquotank County grand jury returned a true bill of indictment against former Second Ward Councilor Gabriel Adkins, according to court documents.

The indictment read charges of disclosure of private image, stalking and cyberstalking.

The indictment said that on February 9, 2020, Adkins “knowingly disclose(d) an image”  with the intent to coerce, harass, intimidate, demean, humiliate or cause financial loss to her.”  “The depicted person is identifiable from the disclosed image … and (her) intimate parts are exposed or engaged in sexual conduct in (the) disclosed image.”

Adkins did not get permission from the woman to disclose the photo, according to the indictment. The indictment also read that Adkins “unlawfully and willfully” communicating electronically with the woman “repeatedly for the purpose of annoying and harassing” her.

The conduct alleged to have occurred between Feb. 1 and Feb. 10, 2020.

For stalking, the indictment said that “on more than one occasion” Adkins harassed the woman by following her. It also accused him of “installing a tracking device on her vehicle for the purpose of tracking her movements.”

Adkins is the owner of Adkins Memorial Funeral Home in Elizabeth City, NC.

In a recent plea hearing, Adkins plead guilty to the disclosed image charge but the stalking and cyberstalking charge was dismissed. 

Adkins was sentenced to 5-15 months in prison but Senior Resident Superior Court Judge Jerry Tillett suspended that sentenced and placed Adkins on 24 months of supervised probation and pay a $250 fine.
