NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s son Adam Abdul-Jabbar has pled guilty to stabbing his neighbor. The incident happened in 2020 when there was an argument over trash cans.
He had entered into a plea agreement on the four charges that he was facing. The serious charges were two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
Initially, he was looking at extensive time behind bars. However, with the agreement, he is going to spend just 180 days in jail.
In addition, Abdul-Jabbar will do two years of probation. Prosecutors were not pleased with the sentence that he received.
“This slap on the wrist is an absolute miscarriage of justice,” Orange County D.A. Todd Spitzer said in a statement to TMZ Sports. “The Orange County District Attorney’s Office vehemently objected … because we believe the complete disregard for human life over a dispute over trashcans is so egregious it warranted prison time.”
Abdul-Jabbar stabbed Raymond Windsor, who was 60-years-old at the time of the attack. He stabbed Windsor in the head, neck, back, and side.
Windsor nearly dead from the attack. Abdul-Jabbar will begin his jail sentence in January.
“The victim in this case has not only suffered serious physical issues, he is suffering from the trauma of having to relive this violent attack every day he walks out into his front yard,” Spitzer said. “This is nothing short of appalling.”
