Kim Kardashian has enlisted the help of her high-powered attorney in order to free a sex trafficking survivor who was sentenced to decades behind the bars for killing a man who solicited her for prostitution as a teen.
Kim is making good on a promise she made earlier this week through a tweet. In the tweet, she vowed to do all she could to help Cyntoia Brown, a 29 years old woman who was sentenced to prison as an adult at 16 years old for killing Johnny Mitchell Allen, a 43-year-old real estate agent who allegedly solicited sex from her.
Here's the tweet, check it out.
The system has failed. It’s heart breaking to see a young girl sex trafficked then when she has the courage to fight back is jailed for life! We have to do better & do what’s right. I’ve called my attorneys yesterday to see what can be done to fix this. #FreeCyntoiaBrown pic.twitter.com/73y26mLp7u

According to The Blast, along with Cyntoia, the 37-year-old Keeping With The Kardashians star is looking to help Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old woman serving 21 years in prison for the first time, non-violent drug offense.
Kim's attorney, Shawn Holley, told The Blast that she “asked Shawn to help her find a way to help those women.”
We have already contacted Alice Johnson and her team of lawyers who are now actively trying to find ways to facilitate her release,
Shawn said he has a conference call scheduled for Friday to start discussions regarding Cyntoia’s case.
She was 16 years old in 2004 when she fatally shot Johnny in Tennessee, according to court documents obtained and multiple local reports. She admitted to fatally shooting Johnny in the back of the head.
