Malcolm X daughter pleads guilty in Queens to theft


The youngest daughter of slain civil rights activist Malcolm X pleaded guilty today to stealing the identity of a family friend to open up several credit accounts ó racking up to more than $55,000 in debt under the victimís name.

Malikah Shabazz had been held in lieu of $100,000 bond since March for obtaining credit in Khaula Bakrís name and using the funds to pay bills and other expenses. Queens prosecutors said the victim is a 70-year-old woman whose late husband was one of Malcolm Xís bodyguards.

Shabazz pleaded guilty to identity theft in Queens Supreme Court in an agreement for five years probation. She was released on her own recognizance and will also have to make restitution payments to various credit companies totaling $55,884.28.
