The son of NBA Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Adam Abdul-Jabbar, was sentenced to 180 days in jail and two years of probation on Thursday after stabbing his neighbor in 2020. According to TMZ Sports, Adam Abdul-Jabbar pleaded guilty on four counts, including two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.
In July 2020, Adam Abdul-Jabbar stabbed Raymond Windsor, 60, several times in the back, head, neck and abdomen. The stabbing occurred after Windsor told Adam Abdul-Jabbar to assist his grandmother with the garbage cans. Following the stabbing, Windsor suffered a skull fracture and brain bleeding.
TMZ Sports reported that Adam Abdul-Jabbar was potentially facing years in prison with the aforementioned charges. As such, Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer told TMZ Sports that the verdict is a "miscarriage of justice" and added that Adam Abdul-Jabbar should've received a larger punishment for his actions.
"This slap on the wrist is an absolute miscarriage of justice," Spitzer said. "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."
In addition to the charges, Windsor also filed a civil lawsuit against Adam Abdul-Jabbar.
