Malcolm X's Daughter Pleads Guilty To ID Theft And Owes $55,000
Malcolm X's Youngest Daughter Pleads Guilty To ID Theft, Will Get Conditional Probation
Malcolm X's youngest daughter pleaded guilty to running up credit card bills adding up to $55,000 on a card stolen from a widow of one of her father's bodyguards. Malikah Shabazz has had quite a few run-ins with the law and will be sentenced to five years probation as long as she gives back the money.
"The defendant, who preyed upon the trusting nature of a once-close family friend, has admitted her guilt in committing a serious felony offense and will be ordered to make her victims financially whole," said Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.
The 46-year-old is still being held until July 28th on a $100,000 bond. Shabazz is still in the middle of a dispute with her five sisters over her parents' $1.4 million estate.
