New York (CNN) -- The daughter of slain African-American activist Malcolm X has avoided a prison sentence after pleading guilty to defrauding the 70-year-old widow of one of her father's bodyguards, prosecutors said.
Malikah Shabazz will have to repay almost $56,000 to credit card companies she defrauded using the identity of New York resident Khaula Bakr, according to a district attorney statement in Queens, New York. Shabazz pleaded guilty to identity theft Thursday in Queens Supreme Court for crimes she committed between August 2006 and November 2007, the statement said.
"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.
Due for sentencing next month, Shabazz will need to repay the debt within a five-year probation period or she faces up to seven years in jail, according to the statement.
Her deal with prosecutors calls for her to pay back the money and be on probation for five years.
Queens prosecutors say the 46-year-old used the name of a 70-year-old woman whose late husband was one of Malcolm X's bodyguards to acquire credit cards that Shabazz used to run up big debts.

Isn’t that the same name as Obama’s daughter?
That rotten apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
Oh, the pride! I’m sure Malcolm is beaming at his daughter from the grave.
Malikah Shabazz will have to repay almost $56,000 to credit card companies she defrauded... Yeah, right. Just “deee-disribution of de welf” And... GUILTY.
If I were the daughter of Malcolm X i would want a different identity too, but for reasons other than grifting money....
Head to head, Malcolm woulda eaten Barry’s lunch. I believe he’d have found him wanting, intellectually. But whattaya gonna do? The guy’s half cracker, after all.
True, ole Malc was only 25% cracker.
Baraq is 50% LOL.
Her nephew, Malcolm Shabazz, burned her mother to death 14 years ago.
Translation, she stays out of jail for five years while she figures another dodge.
Well well WELL well well.
Oh, we’re “conspiracy kooks” so it’s all just mere coincidence.

As nasty as that statement is, it underplays the situation.
His grandma died 22 days after she suffered burns over 80% of her body.
THAT is soooo creepy!
Note the large chin, not dissimilar from Zero’s, hmm... No Stanley Dunham needed for large chin genetics.
“Isnt that the same name as Obamas daughter?”

Close - Malia Ann and the other is Natasha aka Sasha.
