Kim Kardashian, legal crusader!

California Governor Jerry Brown announced that he was allowing retesting of DNA evidence in the case of Kevin Cooper, a death row convict whose case was promoted by Kardashian.

Cooper was convicted of a quadruple murder and has been on death row for 33 years.

Brown released a statement saying he was directing “limited retesting of certain physical evidence in the case and appointing a retired judge as a special master to oversee this testing, its scope and protocols.”

Kardashian got involved in the case after helping Alice Johnson earn her release from prison by President Donald Trump.

Cooper was convicted and faces the death penalty for the murders of four people, including two 10-year-old children.

Cooper has lost more than a dozen appeals but claims that law enforcement officers planted evidence in his case.
