Woman granted clemency got support from another ex-prisoner
By JAKE BLEIBERG
DALLAS (AP) - A 40-year-old Texas woman stands out among those named in President Donald Trump's Wednesday clemency blitz mainly for her lack of political connections. Crystal Munoz spent the last 12 years in prison after being convicted on marijuana charges. But she found an effective advocate in another former federal prisoner whose sentence Trump commuted. Trump granted Alice Marie Johnson clemency in 2018 at the urging of reality TV star Kim Kardashian West. Johnson say she was imprisoned with Munoz at a federal facility in Fort Worth, Texas. Johnson says Trump asked her in October for a list others deserving clemency.
