President Trump reportedly granted clemency on Wednesday for Alice Marie Johnson, a 62-year-old great-grandmother serving a life sentence on nonviolent drug and money laundering charges.
Axios first reported that Trump commuted her sentence. Mic reported that she will be released from prison in Alabama. A commuted sentence does not wipe out Johnson’s conviction.
Last week, Kim Kardashian West was at the White House to ask Trump to pardon Johnson.
After the meeting last week, Kardashian told Mic that Trump “really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice. He really understood, and I am very hopeful that this will turn out really positively.”
The action comes after CNN reported that Trump was considering a dozen new pardons on Wednesday.
