Malcolm X's Daughter Jailed For Not Paying Back Money She Stole During Identity Theft Crime Scheme
Malcolm X's daughter Malikah Shabazz was put in jail yesterday in Queens, NY after a judge said she didn't pay back the elderly woman she ripped off.
According to The NY Daily News, Shabazz failed to make any of the monthly $1,229 restitution payments she agreed to as part of a plea deal.
Shabazz ignored a judge's order requiring her to live in New York while she serves out a five-year probation, court officials say.
They say she's apparently been living in St. Albans, Vt., above a bar that she's looking to buy. She had $800 in her pocket when she was busted for the probation violation, a court official said.
Shabazz, 46, has 50 months to pay back the $55,000, or she risks being locked up for seven years.
Queens District Attorney Richard Brown previously stated,
"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." s
The 46-year-old is also still in the middle of a dispute with her five sisters over her parents' $1.4 million estate.
