A 23-year-old multi-felon asked a judge yesterday if he could be released from custody to take care of his elderly parents. Abdullah Alekabi was in court just last week charged with a new felony, on top of his six prior convictions.

Failing that, Abdullah Alekabi hoped the judge might consider reducing his bail.

Judge K. Michael Kirkman remarked on the youthful felon’s criminal history when he denied both requests. The judge also noticed that Abdullah Alekabi has five “failure-to-appears” listed in his San Diego County court history. Bail remains at $75,000.

Alekabi’s criminal record begins in 2007, when he was 18-years-old and stole a vehicle, according to prosecutor Benjamin Barlow. Alekabi also acquired convictions for two burglaries and making a criminal threat and evade officers with wanton disregard for public safety. And felony resisting arrest.

In his most recent case, Abdullah Alekabi is accused of taking electronic devices from the Target store at 1010 North El Camino Real in Encinitas, last June. A witness who said that tattoos on the defendant were helpful in identifying him as a suspect seen in surveillance video.
