Malikah Shabazz, the youngest daughter of slain civil rights icon Malcolm X, left jail June 8 after pleading guilty to identity theft. According to reports, Shabazz, 46, ran up more than $55,000 in credit card bills on accounts belonging to an elderly family friend.

Shabazz was arrested Feb. 18 at her North Carolina home and had been in police custody ever since. The plea deal requires Shabazz to pay back the money taken from Khaula Bakr, 70, whose late husband was one of Malcolm X’s bodyguards.

In a press release, Queens, N.Y. District Attorney Richard Brown said Shabazz used Bakr’s personal information to open Wells Fargo credit card accounts in her name.

Shabazz and her twin sister were born several months after X’s assassination at the Audubon Ballroom in New York. According to a biography posted on a public speakers’ bureau to which she belongs, Shabazz holds a doctorate in educational administration and human development, a master’s in mathematical science and is certified in HIV/AIDS awareness counseling.
