‘Happy Thanksgiving to all of the men and women that are away from their families this year. A special shout out to Darius, William, Matthew, Tony, Carlos, Daniel, Monte, Matthew, Alan, Kevin, Carlos down at Camp Kilpatrick. I love you guys!’

She was sentenced for 18-years in prison for drug conspiracy and was forced to leave behind her 5-month-old baby and welcomed a second child in jail.
At the time of her clemency by then 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, Kim felt out a tweet regarding the situation.
‘Crystal was shackled by prison guards during the birth of her second daughter,’ she typed. ‘Crystal case was highlighted in the First Step Act which banned the degrading and inhumane treatment of shackling female prisoners during childbirth.’
Two other women she helped free from incarceration and long-term prison sentences included Judith Negron and Tynice Hall.
Kim has notably been working towards achieving a law degree, and passed her baby bar exam in December 2021.
