NEW YORK — The youngest daughter of Malcolm X, Malikah Shabazz was sentenced to 5 years probation for stealing the identity of the widow of one of her father’s bodyguards.

Shabazz, 46, pleaded guilty for racking up a bill of $55,884.28 with various credit companies under the name of Khaula Bakr.

The NY Post Reports:

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.
