Share

When Kim Kardashian West learned that Alice Marie Johnson - a nonviolent drug offender serving a life sentence - would be freed, she broke the news to her while sobbing on the phone.

The commuted life sentence comes after Ms Kardashian West met with the President to lobby for the release of Johnson's, who was convicted for taking part in a cocaine distribution ring in 1996.

"I just got off the most wonderful, emotional and awesome phone call with Alice, Kim and Alice's lawyers", Holley shared.

"I've been in communication with the White House and trying to bring her case to the president's desk and figure out how we can get her out", she said of Johnson, who has spent over two decades behind bars.

Johnson's daughter Catina Scales spoke with Business Insider earlier on Wednesday, as she was en route to pick her mother up from the Aliceville correctional facility in Alabama. "Kim was the one to tell Alice that she was being released".

After Trump commuted Johnson's sentence, Kardashian said that Trump called her personally to break the news.

One of Alice Marie Johnson's lawyers, Brittany Barnett said that Kardashian West joined a phone call with Johnson and her legal team.

While in prison, where she became a grandmother and great-grandmother, Johnson enrolled in educational and vocational programmes, volunteered to help sick and dying prisoners and helped coordinate the prison's Special Olympics. She visited the White House last week of press Johnson's case.

"BEST NEWS EVER!" Kim rejoiced on Twitter.

Guster says there is a chance Kim Kardashian-West's actions could spark a movement for other high profile people to advocate on of others with cases similar to Johnson's. "I didn't even know life was on the table until after the trial", said Johnson.
