Adam Abdul-Jabbar, son of basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, was sentenced to 180 days in jail Wednesday for stabbing his Southern California neighbor with a hunting knife last year during an argument over trash cans, prosecutors said.
The victim, Raymond Windsor, who was 60 years old at the time of the incident, June 9, 2020, suffered injuries to his head, back, neck and side. Prosecutors said that Abdul-Jabbar’s actions were so severe that he fractured Windsor’s skull and that Windsor nearly died of blood loss after he collapsed outside the hospital.
Abdul-Jabbar, who had faced a maximum sentence of nine years in prison, pleaded guilty to three counts of assault with a deadly weapon and a count of carrying a dirk or dagger, with sentencing enhancements for inflicting great bodily injury, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office said.
