Woman Who Gained Prison Pardon Mets With Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian West, yesterday finally met with Alice Marie Johnson, the 63-year-old great-grandmother she helped free after 21 years in prison, they both celebrated the moment in Memphis, and taking time out to snap with Snapchat.
“Alice has never used filters before so I’m showing her the ropes. Love you Alice!” said Kim in one of the videos. And later, during a sitdown with Hoda Kotb for a Today show, she said this of Ms. Johnson: “I love this woman. I love this lady.”
“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,” she continued.
The incident is coming few weeks after kim meet with Presidnt Trump at the White House to discuss prison reform, and particularly the case of Ms. Alice Marie Johnson who had served more than 20 years in prison for a low-level drug offence.
Johnson was convicted of drug-trafficking charges and was sentenced to life in prison in 1996. Kim Kardashian took interest in her case and joined the cause for Johnson’s clemency after she watched a prison video published by the online outlet Mic, in which Johnson argued that she had turned to the world of cocaine trafficking because she was in a desperate situation.
The step taken by Kim weeks later led to Trump granting the great-grandmother a pardon, and she was allowed to reunite with her large family.
Now, Kim has met Alice Johnson and the reality star’s fans are super proud of this.
