Kim Kardashian gives prisoner a lifeline, Entertainment News & Top Stories

The 63-year-old great-grandmother was sentenced to life in prison in 1997 and was not eligible for parole.

Johnson spent 22 years in prison, a third of her life, and said that it was her faith and her optimism that allowed her to carry on.

"Never in my wildest dreams did I think Kim Kardashian would take my cause on", Johnson said. Why was Alice Johnson jailed?

Shawn Holley, who accompanied Kardashian West to the White House last week, says that Kardashian West was the one who told Johnson she was being released in a phone call. "This just isn't fair.' He knew that this was the right thing to do", Kim said.

"I'm just as shocked as anyone".

Trump is still considering pardoning lifestyle maven Martha Stewart, who was convicted in an insider trading case, and commuting the sentence of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, serving 14 years on felony corruption charges, along with several others, the White House official said. She was convicted in 1996 for "leading a multi-million-dollar drug ring that dealt in tons of cocaine from 1991-1994", according to the Tennessean.

High Court Orders Protection For Screening Of Rajinikanth's Kaala In Karnataka
Rajnikanth said he has faith that Karnataka Chief Minister Kumaraswamy will provide security to theatres screening the film. He said that as a producer and a distributor himself, the movie will not financially benefit them even if it is released.


The White House said Alice Johnson had been a model prisoner and worked hard to rehabilitate herself. Court records show she had a motion pending for a reduction in her sentence, but prosecutors were opposed, saying the sentence was in accord with federal guidelines based on the large quantity of drugs involved. "Why are we here?' We started the meeting", Kim said in an interview with CNN's Van Jones. She has said that prison guards wrote letters on her behalf and that she has perfectly clean behavior, spending her free time writing plays.

Her family was there as she was released from an Alabama prison Wednesday. "We plan to go back to Memphis. Everyone is celebrating", Johnson said.

"It's been a whirlwind of reunions with family members".

So far, Trump has issued a half dozen pardons, including to Joe Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff known for violating the civil rights of people of color who was convicted of contempt of the court a year ago; Irve Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff who was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice in 2007; and conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, who pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations back in 2014.

"President Trump was courageous enough to come out and do something Congress hasn't done".
