WASHINGTON – President Trump granted clemency Wednesday to a Tennessee woman serving a life sentence for cocaine trafficking — after hearing a plea from reality television star Kim Kardashian West in an Oval Office meeting.

Alice Marie Johnson, who celebrated her 63rd birthday last week, had her life sentence commuted to time served after 22 years. Trump’s clemency warrant ordered her to be released immediately from Aliceville Federal Correctional Institution in Alabama.

It was Kardashian West who informed Johnson of the president’s decision, said Shawn Holley, a Kardashian lawyer who helped advocate for clemency.
