Kim Kardashian’s Appeal to the President for Release of Woman Serving Life for a Non-Violent Crime Works

The Hill-

President Trump granted clemency on Wednesday for Alice Marie Johnson, a 62-year-old great-grandmother serving a life sentence on nonviolent drug and money laundering charges.

“Ms. Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades,” the White House said in a statement. “While this administration will always be very tough on crime, it believes that those who have paid their debt to society and worked hard to better themselves while in prison deserve a second chance.”

Axios first reported that Trump commuted her sentence. Mic reportedthat she will be released from prison in Alabama. A commuted sentence does not wipe out Johnson’s conviction.

The White House said Johnson’s warden, case manager and vocational training instructor all wrote letters supporting Johnson’s clemency and speaking to her rehabilitation while in prison.

In a statement Wednesday, Brittany Barnett, a member of Johnson’s legal team thanked Trump, saying he had corrected an injustice.

“Justice has been served today, and it’s long overdue,” she said. “Alice has more than paid her debt to society by serving over 21 years of a life-without-parole sentence as a nonviolent drug offender. Life in prison without the possibility of parole screams that a person is beyond hope, beyond redemption. And in Alice’s case, it is a punishment that absolutely did not fit the crime.”

  5. Not trying to be naive, but I spied a pretty prominent cross dangling around her neck. If God calls us to forgive our enemies, she seems to be a pretty good bet. And I’m sure, given the notoriety surrounding this commutation, that her background and references were checked again and again, and then again. And we do need more Christians witnessing today more than ever.

    (She’s going to be watched like a hawk.)

  6. …and POTUS may have factored in the “It takes a thief to catch a thief” into the decision. Who knows better the methods and secrets of drug running than a former drug runner?

  7. Nobody “Forced” her victims to kill themselves. Libertarians should all be arrested then. People get 6 months for rape and 30 years for murder. A life sentence was ridiculous.

  10. How many people associated with her “organization” were murdered?
    Buyers, Sellers, Mules, Addicts?

    I’m sure she’s a nice lady … but … really?
