Kim Kardashian‘s quest for prison reform has continued with a shocking meeting.
On Thursday, May 30, the reality TV queen visited San Quentin State Prison in California where she met with a convicted murderer on death row.
Wearing a blunt bob and all black jumpsuit, Kim, 38, spent two hours inside a cell with Kevin Cooper, a 61 year old inmate that was convicted of killing four people- including two children- in 1985.
Following their conversation, she took to Twitter sharing a photo with Cooper, captioning it, “I am hopeful that Kevin will be exonerated since DNA testing has now been ordered on Kevin’s case and I remain grateful to Governor Newsom for ending capital punishment in California.”
Kim first announced her involvement late last year when she requested then Governor of California Jerry Brown investigate Cooper’s case after evidence emerged that suggested he’d been set up.
“Governor Brown, can you please test the DNA of Kevin Cooper?” Kardashian tweeted last June.
“Governor Brown, please add Kevin Cooper to your legacy of smart, fair and thoughtful criminal justice reforms,” she continued.
Brown later ordered DNA testing to retest a shirt that Cooper says he never wore and as RadarOnline.com reported, California’s new Governor Gavin Newsom ordered for additional testing in February. Results have not yet been announced.
