Kim Kardashian-West to help Tennessean Matthew Charles pay for housing after release under ‘First Step Act’

Kim Kardashian-West to Pay Man’s Rent for Five Years A man by the name of Matthew Cherry was recently released from jail.

He was freed on January 3rd under the criminal justice reform measure known as First Step Act. Kim Kardashian was instrumental in pushing this act. The Act allows judges to retroactively apply the Fair Sentencing Act to an unbalanced drug sentence.

Mathew currently has a full time job and a car but still does not have a place to live due to his lack of credit history and his criminal record (20 years in jail). Kim read about his issues with housing and is now paying his rent for the next 5 years.

You either love or hate the Kardashian's. When you hear a story like this or about Alice Johnson who Kim worked to free from jail, does it change your perspective?
