She was sentenced to 18 years in prison for drug conspiracy and was forced to leave her 5-month-old baby behind and welcomed another child to prison.
At the time of her pardon by the then 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, Kim tweeted about the situation.
“Crystal was shackled by prison guards during the birth of her second daughter,” she wrote. ‘The Crystal case was highlighted in the First Step Act, which banned the degrading and inhumane treatment of shackled female prisoners during childbirth.’
Two other women she helped free from incarceration and lengthy prison sentences included Judith Negron and Tynice Hall.
In particular, Kim has worked to obtain a law degree and passed her baby bar exam in December 2021.
