Good deed! Kim Kardashian- West has recently been in the news for prison reform. The reality star/ entrepreneur is at it again, this time she is paying rent. According to TMZ, Kardashian- West is going to pay Matthew Charles rent for the next 5 years.
Charles was sentenced to 35 years in prison for non-violent drugs charges. He spent 20 years behind bars and was released under the new prison reform law. He allegedly was denied housing due to his past. Once Kim got wind of his situation, she wanted to help.
Charles posted, “I just received the most wonderful news tonight that I just had to share with everyone. Kim Kardashian-West heard about my situation. Was moved and has decided to help me.”
This man is sentenced to 35 yrs for selling drugs. He serves over 21 yrs, is released, finds a job, new relationship, starts a new life, & now is being sent back for another 10 yrs because the original release was an error. This man has completely rehabilitated himself. So sad https://t.co/msLsMSHGxh
