Alice Johnson: Trump grants Kardashian's clemency plea
June 6, 2018 4:03 pm
President Trump has granted clemency to 63-year-old great grandmother Alice Johnson, who has been serving life in prison for a non-violent drug offence.
The case was highlighted last week when Kim Kardashian West met Mr Trump to lobby for her release.
The White House said she had been a model prisoner and worked hard to rehabilitate herself.
Johnson was jailed in 1996, with 15 others, for taking part in a cocaine distribution ring.
She was convicted on charges of attempted possession of drugs and money-laundering in Tennessee and is expected to be released soon.
