It is reported that reality TV star Kim Kardashian West is due to meet US President Donald Trump at the White House to discuss penal reform and the case of a great-grandmother who is serving a life sentence for a first offence.
Celebrity website TMZ reports that Kardashian West and her attorney Shawn Holley are to meet President Trump in a bid to obtain a presidential pardon for 62-year-old Alice Marie Johnson, who is serving life without parole in the US state of Alabama.

Johnson was sentenced to life without parole in 1997 for money laundering and drugs conspiracy charges. Kardashian West has drawn attention to the case, and others, on social media.
This man is sentenced to 35 yrs for selling drugs. He serves over 21 yrs, is released, finds a job, new relationship, starts a new life, & now is being sent back for another 10 yrs because the original release was an error. This man has completely rehabilitated himself. So sad https://t.co/msLsMSHGxh— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 28, 2018
Kardashian West has already held discussions with President Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner about the Johnson case.
