Kim Kardashian-West has been trying to help nullify the life sentences of 17 first-time nonviolent drug offenders in the past three months, all while studying to become a lawyer.


Kim Kardashian-West has been vocal about her intention of becoming a lawyer, but what her supporters didn't know, was that even as a student, she's already helped a total of 17 inmates.


According to Brittany K. Barnett, Kardashian-West's personal attorney and co-founder of the Buried Alive Project and MiAngel Cody, the lead counsel of The Decarceration Collective, Kim has been instrumental in the release of 17 first-time nonviolent drug offenders.

Kim Kardashian-West's Influence

In an interview with CNN, Cody shares how important Kardashian-West's role has been in giving these inmates a shot at freedom.

Thanks to her support through funding and consulting, she has been a huge part of their 90 Days of Freedom campaign that is part of the First Step Act that President Donald Trump signed into law in 2018. Cody shared more about this, saying:

"Kim has been funding this project and (has been) a very important supporter of our 90 Days of Freedom campaign as part of the First Step Act, which President Trump signed into law last year. We've been going around the country in courtrooms and asking judges to release these inmates."


Barnett adds that without Kim footing the bill, it would have never been possible.

"[Kim] has provided financial support to cover legal fees so that we can travel the country. Our relationships with our clients don't end when they are freed. [Kim] is truly dedicated to the issue. I work personally with her, we are really grateful."

However, while it seems as if she's just funding the project, her influence goes beyond that. She also provides assistance to inmates who were incarcerated far from their homes. Kim assists these inmates to get back home to their families.


The latest courtroom success

Thanks to Kim's passion for helping other people, she saved a man named "Jeffrey" who committed a low-level drug crime. He has been in prison for 22 long years, and the reality TV star and law student was extremely happy to announce that he is now reunited with his family after two decades.

“We did it again! Had the best call w/this lovely family & my attorney @msbkb who just won release for their loved one Jeffrey in Miami. He served 22 years of life sentence for low level drug case. He served too much time but it gives me so much joy to fund this life saving work.”

Jeffrey is one of the 17 inmates that Kim has helped. Now that she is an aspiring lawyer, there's no doubt that she'll be able to help hundreds or even thousands more.
