Trump Commutes the Life Sentence of Alice Marie Johnson

President Trump on Wednesday commuted the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a woman serving a life term for a nonviolent drug related crime.



President Trump is commuting the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a woman convicted of drug offenses whose cause was championed by reality TV star Kim Kardashian West.

That’s according to two White House officials who say Trump commuted the 63-year old Johnson’s sentence. She has spent more than two decades behind bars and is not eligible for parole.



Johnson was convicted in 1996 on eight criminal counts related to a Memphis-based cocaine trafficking operation.

Kardashian West visited the White House in May to advocate for Johnson.

Johnson’s daughter Catina Scales told Business Insider she was en route to pick up her mother from the Aliceville correctional facility, where she expected to be released today.
