Kim Kardashian West visited the White House to press for the release of another non-violent drug offender sentenced to life in prison.
The reality TV star met with top Trump advisers, including Ivanka Trump and husband, Jared Kushner, who leads the White House’s criminal justice efforts.
This time, Kardashian has taken interest in the case of Chris Young who was sent to prison for life after a string of convictions on non-violent drug charges. Young, who was 26 at the time, received a life sentence in August 2014 from then-US District Judge Kevin Sharp, who has since left the bench and has very publicly opposed the mandatory minimum sentencing he had to hand down.
“The discussion is mainly focused on ways to improve that process to ensure deserving cases receive a fair review,” said Hogan Gidley, White House deputy press secretary, about their meeting with Kardashian.
This comes three months after she met with Trump to commute the sentence of 63-year-old Alice Johnson who was convicted of drug-trafficking charges and was sentenced to life in prison in 1996.
