She’s been on a quest for prison and criminal justice reform.
And Kim Kardashian was proud to share the story of one prisoner via her Instagram Tuesday.
The reality star/ aspiring lawyer introduced Kevin Keith, an Ohio convict who Kim and others have been fighting to exonerate for a 1994 triple homicide.
Kim shared an image of her video conferencing with Keith while explaining his story in the caption.
‘Kevin Keith was convicted of a triple homicide back in 1994 in Ohio and was sentenced to death,’ Kardashian wrote.
‘I heard about Kevin Keith’s case last year & the more I learn about it, the more I believe the world needs to hear what happened to him! He was on death row & came within days of execution before the governor of Ohio commuted his sentence to life w/o parole.
‘I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin Keith through a video visit & was so impressed w/ the amazing programs he created in prison to help others inside better themselves! So much evidence has been uncovered proving Kevin’s innocence. I hope justice is served soon & he is released,’ she concluded along with a link to JusticeForKevinKeith.org.
Although many accuse her of being in it for the publicity, Kim’s activism seems to be the real deal.
Last year the star was integral in securing the release of non-violent drug offender Alice Marie Johnson, even lobbying President Trump for her release.
Back in June, the Executive In Chief granted Johnson clemency just a week after Kim visited the Commander In Chief to advocate for her release.
Johnson was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for a first-time, non-violent drug offence.
