Mutulu-ShakurTupac’s stepfather, Mutulu Shakur, may be a free man this week after serving 30 years of his 60-year prison sentence “for masterminding a string of deadly armed robberies in New York and Connecticut committed by a militant political group known as ‘The Family,'” the Associated Press reports.

Shakur’s parole hearing is scheduled for Monday, April 4.

His original release date was scheduled for February 10, yet the 65-year old remains an prisoner at the high risk U.S. penitentiary in Victorville, California.

The Baltimore, Maryland native made the FBI’s Most Wanted list after the $1.6 million caper of an armored truck at a Rockland County, New York mall was executed in 1981.

The heist resulted in the killing of a Brinks security guard and two Nyack, New York police officers.

In 1986, he was found in Los Angeles after being on the run for half a decade. He was indicted for racketeering and sentenced to 60 years in prison.

He was also charged with helping Joanne Chesimard, now known as Assata Shakur, escape from a New Jersey prison in 1979, where she was serving a life sentence for the murder of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster six years prior. She now lives in Cuba under political asylum.
