Kim Kardashian is working to free yet another prison inmate, as she took to her Instagram to share her latest visit to a death row inmate, identified as Rodney Reed. The celebrity mother of four, even with the difficulty in getting access to a death row inmate, was able to have her way, as she continues her legal apprentice on Criminal Justice System in the United States.
Kim Kardashian visit to Rodney Reed was an emotional one, and somehow a relief for the inmate, as he has just a few weeks before his execution. But this visit could change everything, as Kim once more, came to the rescue for yet anohter inmate badly needing help.
Kim describing her experience at the jail, said:
“Today, I had the honor of meeting Rodney Reed in person and the privilege of sitting with him when he got the news that the highest court in Texas had issued a stay of execution and remanded the case back to the trial court for further consideration.“
“Words cannot describe the relief and hope that swept over the room in that moment. That hope had been building over the last few weeks around Rodney’s case. We have seen Democrats and Republicans come together. We have seen grassroots activists and lawmakers link arms.”
“We have heard people all around the globe speak up. And all because of a deep belief that every man or woman accused of a crime – especially one punishable by death – deserves the chance to have all available evidence considered.”
“So grateful for the commitment and passion of everyone who voiced their support, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles for their recommendation to issue a 120 day reprieve, and the courts for issuing a stay!” she said.
According to TMZ which also reported the news, Kim Kardashian West is not just lobbying to set a death row inmate free, she met with him face-to-face with the clock ticking to try to figure out a plan.
The report also stated that Kim is desperately trying to stay the execution of Rodney Reed, which was originally scheduled for November 20th because she and many others believe there is substantial evidence to exonerate him of the murder he was convicted of more than 20 years ago.
Lucky for both Kim and Rodney, on Friday the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals issued the stay of execution recommending a 120-day reprieve.
