Kim Kardashian’s campaign to free a grandmother from prison is over following President Trump’s decision to give her clemency.

Alice Marie Johnson was serving a life sentence for a non violent drug offence in 1996.

But now, after 22 years, Alice is set for freedom thanks to Kim Kardashian.

Kim met with President Trump on 31 May to discuss prison reform after being inspired by Alice’s story.

Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka has also previously campaigned for Alice’s freedom.

The White House revealed in a statement: “Ms Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behaviour and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades.

“Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates.”

Kim shared the news with her 60.1 million followers, tweeting a link to an article alongside: “BEST NEWS EVER!!!!”

She continued: “So grateful to @realDonaldTrump, Jared Kushner & to everyone who has showed compassion & contributed countless hours to this important moment for Ms. Alice Marie Johnson. Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are deserving of a second chance.

“I hope to continue this important work by working together with organisations who have been fighting this fight for much longer than I have and deserve the recognition.”

Revealing that she broke the news to Alice herself, Kim said: “The phone call I just had with Alice will forever be one of my best memories. Telling her and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget.”

Alice met the criteria for Barack Obama’s Clemency Project in 2014 but was turned down for release just days before the former president left office.
