Kim Kardashian West has been keeping up with the case of Alice Marie Johnson -- a first-time nonviolent drug offender serving life behind bars -- and thanks in part to the reality star's advocacy, President Donald Trump commuted Johnson's sentence on Wednesday (June 6).
The news comes just one week after Trump and Kardashian met in the Oval Office to discuss prison reform and sentencing.
“Ms. Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades,” a White House statement reads. “Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates.”
