Sentenced to 18 years in prison for drug conspiracy, she was forced to abandon her 5-month-old baby and welcomed a second child to prison.
At the time of her clemency by the then 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, Kim sent out a tweet about the situation.
“Crystal was handcuffed by prison guards during the birth of her second daughter,” she wrote. “Crystal case was highlighted in the First Step Act, which banned the degrading and inhumane treatment of tying female prisoners during childbirth.”
Two other women she helped free from incarceration and lengthy prison terms were Judith Negron and Tynice Hall.
In particular, Kim has been working towards obtaining a law degree and passed her baby bar exam in December 2021.
