Kim Kardashian Meets Donald Trump On Prison Reform, Freeing Another Prisoner

Adjust Comment Print

Kim Kardashian West is trying to get another convicted felon released from prison.

"It's so unfair", she said on Jason Flom's Wrongful Conviction podcast, which was released on Wednesday.

The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star was proud of herself earlier this year when she managed to convince President Donald Trump to pardon Johnson - a 63-year-old grandmother who was thrown behind bars in 1997 on money laundering and drug conspiracy charges - after she employed a team of lawyers to defend her.

While President Trump has previously demonstrated a willingness to use his power to pardon and commute sentences, the White House is also engaged in an effort to pass prison reform legislation on Capitol Hill.

Her cause is prison reform ... and she's also championing the case of Chris Young, who is serving a life sentence in Tennessee for cocaine and marijuana possession.

She leant on her identity, and argued that, as a black woman, she was more fitting to represent her ethnically diverse district. The last time an incumbent Democratic House member lost a primary was in 2014, when Seth Moulton defeated former Rep.

"It's so unfair", she said, according to Page Six, who received an advanced version of the podcast.

Chris Young has been locked up for a decade, and is set to serve a life sentence, for non-violent drug charges. He was saying, 'I can stay out of trouble in here, but going in there there's stabbings, there's this. He does, however, say that mandatory minimum sentences were at the heart of his decision and regrets Young's sentence.

The sentencing was in 2014, and Sharp left the bench in 2017, according to the Tennessean.

In prison, Chris is said to study in his free time and read as much as he can. Court documents say federal agents believed Young was buying crack cocaine from a leader of the ring at a gas station.

The mother of three retweeted Buried Alive Project's story about Young to her 58 million followers Tuesday, a move Kardashian made when she began her involvement with Alice Johnson in 2017. "I mean, I already knew just by talking to you on the phone and just seeing you in videos, but I mean, you are everything and more than I ever thought".
