SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (WTOK) - An Alabama woman who was until recently serving life without parole for a first-offense drug conviction got to thank her champion in person Wednesday.

Kim Kardashian West met with President Donald Trump recently to make her case for Alice Johnson's release from a federal prison.

Shortly afterward, the president commuted Johnson's sentence and she returned to her home in Aliceville, Ala.

Wednesday, Johnson, 63, met with Kardashian West at a home in Southaven, near Memphis.
