Kim Kardashian West Advocates For Death Row Inmate Julius Jones: He’s Been Incarcerated 21 Years For A Crime He Didn’t Commit
Kim Kardashian West has been considered an angel of some kind to help free 17 inmates, and for a man named Julius Jones, he’s hoping to be next on her list.
The reality TV star turned soon-to-be lawyer took to Instagram to speak about Julius Jones and her belief that he is an innocent man. Julius has been incarcerated for over 21 years and Kim Kardashian West is now attempting to help set him free.
In a post that consisted of a series of photos with his family, she captioned:
I was honored to sit with Julius Jones on death row in Oklahoma last week and then spend some time at church with his family. Julius has been incarcerated for over 21 years for a crime he did not commit. The affects that this has had on his family is really unimaginable and I pray the parole board recommends his commutation because this man needs to be able to hug his parents again. #JusticeForJulius
The last time Julius’s parents hugged him was when he was 19. That was 21 years ago.
Julius Jones mother @madelinejones48 should be able to hug her son. She’s so strong and her faith and strength is so inspirational. We will not give up the fight to free Julius Jones!
Julius broke down in tears when he spoke of his sister Antoinette @sassysoulinc, he promised her he would take her to prom and because of wrongful conviction he was unable to take her! We need to get him out and plan the best prom ever!!!
I’m so thankful for the most supportive freedom fighters for Julius Jones. We won’t stop until we get justice.
Julius Jones was convicted for killing a 45-year-old businessman, Paul Howell. He was a 19-year-old student at the University of Oklahoma at the time.
Last year, Kim Kardashian West helped to free Momolu Stewart, a man convicted of murder for fatally shooting a man. He spent 22 years behind bars until West wrote a letter on his behalf, asking for “humanity in supporting the release of Momolu Stewart,” citing that he has been rehabilitated and is no longer a danger to society.
