Woman Kim Kardashian Helped Free From Serving Life Sentence, Releasing Memoir & Movie About Life
A lot can change within a year. This time last year, Alice Marie Johnson was restricted to prison bars in Alabama due to being sentenced life in prison for non-violent drug possession and money laundering charges. In October 2017, Kim Kardashian West received word about Johnson’s story and lobbied Donald Trump to commute her life sentence.
In June 2018, Johnson was freed, and as of recently, she just signed a book deal along with film and television rights. The publishing company for the memoir, Harper, announced Wednesday Johnson is expected to be releasing a book about her life titled, “After Life: My Journey From Incarceration to Freedom” on May 21, 2019.
According to the company, Johnson’s story will be an
honest, faith-driven memoir [while providing] a deep look into the systemic issue of mass incarceration.
I feel humbled that the telling of my story gives hope and my years of pain were not in vain.
Kardashian West is reported to be giving a foreword for the memoir.She also gave a statement speaking to the impact Johnson had on her life.
My life has forever changed because of Alice Marie Johnson. Her story is a gift that will now reach so many millions more through her book and film. I hop eAlice’s case is just the beginning of a movement to help those left behind. I am invested in continuing to support Alice and this cause.
There is no word on a release date for the film or who would be playing Johnson. The only information known are that the film, television, and “life rights” were sold to Endeavor Content and One Community.
