Kim Kardashian is pushing US president Donald Trump to free another convicted felon who was sentenced to life in prison when he was 22 after being caught with eight ounces of cocaine and six ounces of crack.Mrs West is “fighting” to free a prisoner who was sentenced to life for drug possession.
The reality star believes Chris Young was given an “unfair” punishment and that “the laws really have to change”.
Speaking on a United States podcast, she told listeners she “talks to the White House often” regarding jail reform.
In May, Kim met with President Donald Trump to debate the discharge of another unfortunate person, Alice Marie Johnson – who was only freed a month later.
Now Kim hopes that she will be able to do a similar job for 30-year-old Chris – who has been in jail for eight years already.“It’s so unfair,” she told Jason Flom on his Wrongful Conviction podcast, that was aired on Wednesday.
According to the Kardashians star, Chris was confined for possession of marijuana and less than half a gram of cocaine.
“It started with Ms. Alice, but looking at her and seeing the faces and learning the stories of the men and women I’ve met inside prisons I knew I couldn’t stop at just one. It’s time for REAL systemic change.”
His story has conjointly been shared by the Buried Alive Project – that desires to prevent life without parole sentences being handed out under United States drug laws.
