Kim Kardashian west recently visited an inmate on death row in Oklahoma which has worked as a great boost of morale for everyone that has been fighting for the freedom of Julius Jones.
Kim’s visit brought a lot of attention to the case as she met him face-to-face and it has got the family and supporters super excited.
People handling the “Justice for Julius” told that their website has noticed a tenfold traffic increase and thousand of emails are flowing in from all around the world into the site and also the inbox of the Oklahoma pardon and parole board, requesting a commutation of his sentence.
Back in 1999, when Jones was 19, he was arrested for shooting and killing a 45-year-old man, Paul Howell. He was convicted for 1st degree murder and sentenced to death in 2002. A lot of people believe that the case was racially driven and that there was minimum evidence tying him to the scene.
Last year, a clemency petition was filed by Julius and is now waiting for the parole board to recommend his sentence to be commuted.
