Kim tweeted: "We did it again! Had the best call w/this lovely family & my attorney…

"Who just won release for their loved one Jeffrey in Miami – he served 22 years of life sentence for low level drug case.

"He served too much time but it gives me so much joy to fund this life saving work."

The news comes after Kim revealed she's studying to become a lawyer herself.

She's on a four-year apprenticeship with a law firm based in San Fransisco and is hoing to to take the bar exam in 2022.

Kim told Vogue magazine: "The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency, and I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, s**t.

"I need to know more… It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role…

"But I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society.

"I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more."
