According to CNN, Kim appeared on the podcast “Wrongful Conviction” and said she’s working on Chris’ case, who is currently serving a life sentence on “drug charges after receiving three strikes.”
“Yesterday, I had a call with a gentleman that’s in prison for a drug case — got life,” she said. “It’s so unfair. He’s 30 years old; he’s been in for almost 10 years.”
Chris’ previous convictions were for “marijuana possession and marijuana with less than half a gram of cocaine possession that resulted in three strikes and a life sentence.”
“I was on the phone with the judge that sentenced him to life, who resigned because he had never been on the side of having to do something so unfair and now he is fighting with us to get (Young) out,” she said. “It gave me such hope. It was a mandatory sentence that he had to deliver and (the judge) knew it was so wrong.”
Back in April 2017 former US District Judge Kevin H. Sharp spoke with the Nashville paper and said that he was going to get Chris out.
“If there was any way I could have not given him life in prison I would have done it,” Sharp said. “What they did was wrong, they deserved some time in prison, but not life.”
