Kim Kardashian and her legal team have helped free 17 prisoners over the past three months.

According to TMZ, each of them served years of life sentences without parole for low-level drug offenses.

They achieved this through the 90 Days of Freedom campaign, which was launched by Kim’s lawyer Brittany K. Barnett, in partnership with lawyer MiAngel Cody of The Decarceration Collective.

It’s believed Kim has been secretly funding the campaign over the past few months.

While Kim has shed light on a few people she’s helped out of jail, including Jeffrey Stringer, Cyntoia Brown and Alice Marie Johnson – it looks like the reality star has helped a lot more people than we thought.

The prisoners are all being released under the First Step Act, a bill which aims to reduce mandatory minimum prison sentences and reintegrate inmates into society.

The bill was passed after Kim famously met with US President Donald Trump last May, to discuss pardoning 63-year-old Alice Johnson, who was serving a life sentence for a first-time nonviolent drug offence.

Kim’s meeting with Trump was successful, and Alice was released from prison just a few days later, after being granted clemency.

The news comes after Kim recently revealed that she’s studying to become a lawyer.
