Kim Kardashian West is trying to get another convicted felon released from prison.

The brunette beauty is now in regular contact with President Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner as he too is "passionate" about changing the USA sentencing laws.

Kardashian was joined at the sit-down by one-time Obama adviser Van Jones, Shon Hopwood, a lawyer who served time in prison for bank robbery and Leonard Leo of the Federalist Society, who has been instrumental in steering Trump's Supreme Court picks.

"The discussion is mainly focused on ways to improve that process to ensure deserving cases receive a fair review".

Kardashian last visited the White House three months ago to press for a pardon for Alice Marie Johnson.

"It's so unfair. He's 30 years old".

One week after Kardashian West's visit, Trump granted Johnson clemency, freeing her from prison after a more than two-decade stint on drug charges.

Kardashian shared on social media on Wednesday an interview she did for podcast "Wrongful Conviction", hosted by Jason Flom.

Young is serving a life sentence on nonviolent drug charges, but recently, the judge in his case, Kevin Sharp, wrote a letter to Trump arguing that Young only played a minor role in the drug conspiracy and that the mandatory sentencing laws that determined his sentence was out of proportion with the crime.

Reality star Kim Kardashian is reportedly meeting with President Donald Trump this week to discuss prison reform, particularly a pardon for a Clarksville man serving a life sentence in prison.

"It's so unfair. He's 30 years old".

"It's scary when you have a minor drug charge but then you get life and you're stuck in this insane maximum-security prison with murderers and people [like that]", the 37-year-old reality star continued.

She said: "All of my attorneys at home always joke, like, 'You've gotta just come be in the office.' If I didn't have to go for so much school, I would truly love to be an attorney [and] practice all the time".
