Kim Kardashian Quietly Helped Free 17 Inmates Over the Last 90 Days [Photos]

 

Kim Kardashian may have recently tweeted about one, but the reality-star-turned-aspiring-lawyer has freed nearly two-dozen prisoners within the last 90 days and reunited them with their families.

via TMZ:

We’ve learned Kim and her legal team helped 17 prisoners gain freedom over the last 3 months or so — each of them having served years of life sentences without parole … for low-level drug offenses.

It’s all part of the 90 Days of Freedom campaign launched by Kim’s lawyer, Brittany K. Barnett, in partnership with lawyer MiAngel Cody of The Decarceration Collective. The campaign puts the First Step Act — signed by President Trump last year — to work for prisoners who received Draconian sentences. 

Kim is footing the bill while Barnett, who also co-founded the Buried Alive advocacy group, and Cody handle the lawyering. We’re told Kim’s been secretly funding the campaign over the past few months. 

We’ve known about a few cases Kim’s backed — Jeffrey Stringer in Florida, Cyntoia Brown in Tennessee, Alice Marie Johnson in Alabama — but now we know the list is much longer.

For those of you who need proof, look no further than the cases below:
