Kim Kardashian West has decided to help free a 30-year-old man who’s serving a life sentence for drug possession, after she successfully got release for Alice Johnson earlier this year.
The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star was proud of herself earlier this year when she managed to convince President Donald Trump to pardon Johnson – a 63-year-old grandmother who was thrown behind bars in 1997 on money laundering and drug conspiracy charges – after she employed a team of lawyers to defend her.
And now Kim wants to do it again for Chris Young, who was sentenced to life in prison for marijuana and cocaine possession after being arrested in 2010, because she thinks it’s “unfair” that he was given such a harsh sentence.
Kim set the ball rolling straight away and has since spoken to the Tennessee Judge Kevin Sharp, who resigned because the law forced him to give such a long sentence, and the pair of them are working with her team of lawyers to help release Chris.
She explained: “I was on the phone with the judge that sentenced him to life, who resigned because he had never been on the side of having to do something so unfair, and now he is fighting [alongside] us to get [Young] out.”
The brunette beauty is now in regular contact with President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner as he too is “passionate” about changing the US sentencing laws.
Meanwhile, Kim may have made a career out of her looks and curvaceous figure, but she recently said she’d love to follow in her late father Robert Kardashian’s footsteps and become a lawyer – and her team of legal advisors think she’d be good at it.
She said: “All of my attorneys at home always joke, like, ‘You’ve gotta just come be in the office.’ If I didn’t have to go for so much school, I would truly love to be an attorney [and] practice all the time. Everyone who knows me knows that I’m so passionate about it.”
