President Trump Pardons Grandmother Serving Life After Kim Kardashian's Visit

Kim Kardashian's advocacy for prison reform has persuaded Donald Trump to Pardon a woman sentenced to life in prison.

(AllHipHop News) Kim Kardashian West's trip to Washington D.C. to advocate for prison reform has already produced results.

Last month, Kim K. attended a meeting at the White House in Washington D.C. to discuss criminal justice reform.

While there, she asked Trump to pardon great-grandmother Alice Marie Johnson, who is currently serving a life sentence without parole for her first drug offense.

The reality star became aware of Johnson’s story after seeing a piece on Mic.com in October, and she told the website ahead of her meeting that, “I’ve been fighting very hard and am willing to do what it takes to fight for what’s right.”

Today (June 6), President Trump signed a commutation for Johnson, who was sentenced to life in 1996.  

The 37-year-old took to the social media site to thank President Trump for listening to her cause.

After their initial meeting, President Trump tweeted a picture showing him grinning widely while sitting behind his desk in the Oval Office as Kim stands beside him in an all-black ensemble.

Alice Marie Johnson emailed reporters from prison and described Kim as her “war angel… who will stop at nothing or leave no stone unturned to bring me home.”
