TV star Kim Kardashian reportedly supported the campaign by his relatives with a visit to the death row inmate Julius Jones. Kardashian, who has been campaigning for judicial reform for some time, already met Jones on Monday on death row in the US state of Oklahoma, according to a local branch of ABC. The man was convicted of killing a businessman more than 20 years ago and still maintains his innocence to this day.
Promiportal TMZ reported today that Kardashian’s visit had already shown some influence: the website for Jones had increased its access data tenfold, and the organizers and the responsible committee for pardoning convicts received “thousands of emails”. Most recently, a documentary had already drawn public attention to Jones’ case.
