- New York Post (@nypost) May 31, 2018Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing. "Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates".
I am going to make you proud that you gave me this second chance in life.
Alice Marie Johnson's life changed on Wednesday - and she has Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian West to thank. "Good luck to Alice Johnson", he wrote. Although she didn't engage in any violent activity, she was given a mandatory life sentence plus 25 years, according to ABC News.
The reality star and entrepreneur tweeted in November that she consulted her legal team about Cyntoia Brown, a 29-year-old woman who was arrested for killing a man who sexually abused her when she was a teenage victim of trafficking.
Johnson said that now that she's free, she wants to fight hard for prison reform, including making sure people incarcerated are ready to rejoin society when their "miracle" does come.
- Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 6, 2018I hope to continue this important work by working together with organizations who have been fighting this fight for much longer than I have and deserve the recognition. Her warden, case manager, and vocational training instructor have all written letters in support of her clemency.
When asked what she's noticing now that she's outside, she said "I can't get over these phones. She told me that she knew that this was meant to be", Johnson said.
Mic interviewed Johnson from prison a year ago.
In an interview Thursday night with Fox News' Martha MacCallum on "The Story," Johnson expressed her gratitude for Trump's decision the day before to commute her sentence.
