Trump commutes Alice Johnson’s sentence after Kardashian visit

By Christina Santi,

President Donald Trump has granted clemency to first-time nonviolent drug offender, Alice Marie Johnson, just one week after meeting with Kim Kardashian West, who pleaded her case, in the Oval Office, reports BBC News.

Johnson was sentenced to life after she was convicted on charges of conspiracy to possess cocaine and attempted possession of cocaine in 1996. She has spent the last 21 years at a federal prison in Aliceville, Alabama.

The beauty mogul became involved with Johnson’s case in October after she saw a viral video from Mic’s Opinion desk, which features Johnson, now a 63-year-old great-grandmother sharing her story from prison.
