Tupac’s Stepfather, Mutulu Shakur, In 1988 Was Sentenced To 60 Years In Prison F by BuchiPrinzy: 12:29pm On Oct 18
Tupac Shakur’s stepfather and freedom fighter, Mutulu Shakur, whose real name is Jeral Wayne Williams has spent 34 years in jail after he was sentenced to 60 years in prison on May 11th, 1988 after alleged reports of him leading The Family (A black revolutionary group) that robbed the Brinks company armoured truck of 2 million USD and killed three security officers; two Nyack Policemen, Waverly Brown and Edward O’Grady, Peter Paige, a security officer from the company, at a mall in New York City, in 1981.

Mutulu was born August 8th, in Baltimore, Maryland. He married Tupac’s mother in 1975, but they divorced in 1982, a year after the New York robbery. He became the most wanted on FBI list till he was arrested in 1986 in Los Angeles, was tried a year after and was handed 60 years in 1988.

During Mutulu Shakur’s trial, he was accused of helping Assata – Tupac’s aunt, and also a freedom fighter, (sentenced to life in jail over the assassination of a Trooper, in New Jersey, 1973) in her prison break. According to reports, members of The Family went for a visit to the New Jersey State Prison, armed. They reportedly captured two correctional officers and escaped with Assata in a prison van. Mutulu was accused of guarding the escape track, although he pleaded not guilty and his lawyer challenged that no evidence shows Mutulu Shakur’s involvement.
