Kim Kardashian is not yet a lawyer, and yet she's already helped a handful of people to get out of jail after their long terms for low drug charges. This time, she helped free a man who has been in jail for 22 long years.

Kim Kardashian-West is passionate about helping other people, and she's been clear about that since day one. Now, she's been able to save yet another person from staying in jail his entire life, for a low-level drug crime.

Kim announced on her Twitter account that she was able to help release a man named "Jeffrey" from jail after being there for 22 long years. She posted a photo of Jeffrey's family, who were happy with the news.

Kim's lawyer dreams

Knowing how many more people she can help if she pursued her dream of becoming a lawyer, Kim is now taking law classes from author and CNN commentator Van Jones, and attorney Jessica Jackson, who are co-founders of #cut50, a national bipartisan advocacy group on criminal-justice reform.

Kim is not only a registered student of the California State Bar, but she is also a student who has been excelling in it. In fact, she got an A in her Torts exam, something that she felt her fans and followers should know as she posted about it on her Twitter account.

Kim's trip to the White House

Late last year, Kardashian went to the White House to try and rally towards releasing a drug possession prisoner. Those with her included Leonard Leo, Shop Hopwood, Jared Kushner, Van Jones, and Judge Kevin Sharp. It was Sharp who sentenced Chris Young, the person she was trying to save, back in 2010.

Young was given a life sentence in Tennessee for cocaine and marijuana possession. Now, at 30 years old, he received the sentence due to mandatory minimum sentencing. The judge soon after retired because he was not at peace with having to jail someone for that long, just because the law says so.

Chris Young has managed to stay out of trouble but has been suffering from sickle cell anemia which has brought him in and out of a medical facility and his maximum security prison.
