A former actor on "Slam" is grateful to Kim Kardashian for her role in his early release after spending 22 years in prison. They met in July and he even refers to her as his "sister."

Thanks to Kim Kardashian’s efforts, another convicted felon has been granted a release.

PAYING TRIBUTE TO HIS "SISTER"

Momolu Stewart was filled with gratitude towards the reality star after a DC Superior Court judge announced his early release

Back in July, following a visit to the DC Correctional Treatment Facility where she met Stewart, Kardashian wrote a letter to the judge requesting for Stewart’s freedom. 

Stewart first shared a photo with Kardashian after they met. He revealed that they were “making power moves from the inside.” He even referred to the aspiring lawyer as his “sister.

Stewart was only 16 when he was convicted of murder. He has since served 22 years in prison. He also earned his GED and took a college course while behind bars through the Georgetown Prisoner’s Scholars program. 

The judge who ruled on his release took notice of the former "Slam" star’s “talents and gifts” and encouraged him to use his education to help rehabilitate other people.

With Kardashian’s endorsement, Stewart will be walking out of prison next week. His sentence was reduced to time served and he faces five years of probation after his release.

Due to her time spent advocating for prison reform, Kardashian has expressed her intention of becoming a lawyer.  In fact, she’s currently marking the end of her first year of a four-year apprenticeship with a San Francisco law firm

On September 15, he took to his Instagram once again to thank Kardashian for her role in his early release. 

“Thank you @kimkardashian thanks to the homie Kim for her support in my case,” he wrote to accompany a screenshot announcing the good news of his “second chance.”

ANOTHER INMATE KARDASHIAN HELPED 

This is not the first time Kardashian has been instrumental in freeing an incarcerated individual. Last year, she was also successful in petitioning for Alice Marie Johnson who was serving a life sentence for a non-violent drug offense. Johnson, 63, was released after Kardashian pleaded with President Donald Trump for her release. 

ON BECOMING A LAWYER BY 2020

Due to her time spent advocating for prison reform, Kardashian has expressed her intention of becoming a lawyer. In fact, she’s currently marking the end of her first year of a four-year apprenticeship with a San Francisco law firm.  She intends to take the bar exam in 2022. 

"I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society. I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more," she told Vogue about her reason for taking up law. 

As the daughter of the late Robert Kardashian who successfully defended OJ Simpson during his high-profile murder trial, Kardashian's interest in the profession could also partly be attributed to her genes. Even her husband, Kanye West agreed that she "had it in her."

Kim's role in Stewart's case will be featured in her upcoming documentary, "Kim Kardashian West: The Justice Project" which airs next week on Oxygen.
