For the last year, I have immersed myself in learning about the criminal justice system. I visited prisons, met with formerly incarcerated people, and helped with cases of individual injustice – including two death penalty cases. I have met with and am very supportive of Governor Newsom and his decision to help bring an end to the California Death Penalty. Racial bias and unfairness run deep throughout the justice system but especially when it comes to the death penalty. And we should not be okay with the risk that an innocent person could be executed. I hope we can turn toward better solutions that focus more on healing victims of trauma and prioritizing fairness and justice.
How Kim Struggles For The Sentenced Victims
The celebrity’s involvement in political and social issues is quite evident. She, genuinely, assisted to commute the sentence for Alice Marie Johnson, who was in jail for over 20 years in an accusation for a non-violent drug crime. As a matter of fact, last year Kim Kardashian, inspiringly, persuaded President Donald Trump to support the First Step Act which thus reformed the US prison system. She, even, visited the White House to meet President Donald Trump to convince him for the release of a 62-year-old lady serving a life sentence. The president, however, a week after the advocacy of Kardashian, granted Alice Marie Johnson clemency.
The Charle’s Mathew Case
Kim paid the rent for five years of Charles Matthew. Charles, in fact, spent 21 years in jail for drug-related offenses. Later, in January, he was one of the first prisoners released as a result of the First Step Act. Moreover, the model cum actress worked hard to highlight the case of Cyntoia Brown.
Just got word that Matthew Charles will be coming home within 24 hours. Thank you @realDonaldTrump for signing the 1st step act. This is what true bipartisanship can accomplish. https://t.co/9EnwDSksfw
