How is Kim Kardashian involved?
Kim has been committed to prison reform after announcing that she is studying to become a lawyer. So far, Kim has helped commute the life sentences of more than a dozen first-time nonviolent drug offenders.
Kim Kardashian posted a series of tweets, explaining Corey Miller’s case to her followers. She wrote:
“On January 18, 2002 a tragedy occurred when a young man was killed. The next day Corey Miller was arrested for the murder.”
“The jury convicted Corey 10-2 and he was sentenced him to life in prison. If his trial was today, the jury would have had to be unanimous for him to be convicted.”
“Since his trial, witnesses have recanted, new evidence of his potential innocence has come to light, and there are claims of jurors being pressured into voting to convict.”
Kim also announced that she will be teaming up with the singer Monica, who was dating Corey at the time, to fight for his release.
“True justice for the young man requires that the person who actually killed him be held responsible and that Corey Miller he returned home to his kids.”
