Kim Kardashian has helped secure the release of 17 inmates in the past three months. It has now been revealed that she is set to turn this into a realty TV series.
The aspiring lawyer intends to publicize her efforts in the criminal justice reform space. It’s been revealed that she has secured a new true-crime series with Oxygen, set to focus on those who have been wronged by the American criminal justice system. This was all done as a part of the 90 Days of Freedom campaign launched by the reality star’s attorney, Brittany K. Barnett, in collaboration with lawyer MiAngel Cody of The Decarceration Collective. Each prisoner they have helped has served multiple years of life sentences without parole.
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. pic.twitter.com/pbYicKmFpJ
