Kim Kardashian West is trying to get another convicted felon released from prison.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star was proud of herself earlier this year when she managed to convince President Donald Trump to pardon Alice 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 attorneys to defend Johnson.
And now Kardashian West wants to do it again for Chris Young, 30, 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.
Speaking on Jason Flom’s “Wrongful Convictions” podcast, which will air on Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018, the 37-year-old reality TV star said: “Yesterday, I had a call with a gentleman that’s in prison for a drug case — got life. It’s so unfair. He’s 30 years old. He’s been in for almost 10 years.”
Kardashian West set the ball rolling straight away and has since spoken to 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 attorneys to help releaseYoung.
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, Kardashian West 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 an attorney, and her team of legal advisors thinks 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.”
