Kim Kardashian to meet released prisoner Alice Johnson for first time

Kim Kardashian will be flying to Memphis, Tennessee for a face-to-face meeting with the commuted convicted Alice Marie Johnson, 63, after her release from prison.

Kim, 47 is reportedly heading to Memphis, Tennessee according to UsWeekly.

Kardashian, who has been working on behalf of the grandma for months, was the first person to tell the non-violent drug offender about her commutation back on June 6 but this will be the duo’s first in person encounter.

The grandmother who spent the last 21 years of her life in prison for a drug-related crime was pardoned and set free by US President Donald Trump after Kim Kardashian met and pleaded with him to commute her sentence.

Speaking to Good Morning America on June 7, Johnson said: ‘When Kim told me that I was being released, I started jumping and screaming and crying, and everyone else was crying.’

‘It was wonderful. I’m so glad that she was the one who was able to deliver the news to me. It was a perfect ending.’

Alice who has since returned to her family will appear with Kim Kardashian on NBC’s Today show on Thursday, June 14, 2018, according to UsWeekly.
