Sounds like Malikah got the benefit of her father’s legacy on this one…
Back in March we reported that legendary civil rights leader’s daughter was involved in some shenanigans and thought for sure she was going to jail. Jokes on us…
Malikah Shabazz, the youngest of Malcolm X’s six daughters, was sentenced yesterday to five years’ probation for stealing the identity of the widow of one of her dad’s bodyguards.
Shabazz, 46, pleaded guilty to racking up a bill totaling $55,884.28 with various credit companies under the name of Khaula Bakr.
Shabazz, who had been held in custody since March on $100,000 bail, admitted during the case that she had used the money to pay bills and for other expenses.
Arrest warrants were issued in June 2010, and she was extradited from North Carolina, where she had been living in a desolate community near Asheville with her 13-year-old daughter.
Shabazz was sentenced by Queens Supreme Court Justice Fernando Camacho.
Oddly, while leaving the courtroom smiling, she was heard to say, “I haven’t been in New York since 1999.”
So this broad steals almost $60,000 and only gets 5 years probation?! Something stinks here, for that kind of money we’re pretty sure most people would have gotten some serious jail time.
