Alice Johnson Gets Candid About Her Arrest and Fight for Freedom in New FOX News Special

Alice Johnson brought two very unlikely characters together. The 63-year-old great grandmother had been serving a life sentence for a first time nonviolent drug offense, when someone named Kim Kardashian (you may have heard of her) learned of her story. Kardashian appealed to President Trump for Johnson's freedom and, after a few stunning photo ops and conversations between the celebrity and the president, he agreed to commute the rest of Johnson's sentence and give her a second chance at life. Johnson welcomed the news with tears of joy and profuse praise for both Kardashian and Trump.

The now-freed citizen gets very candid in an upcoming FOX News special, "The Alice Johnson Story" this Sunday. In a sit down interview with Ainsley Earhardt, Johnson reveals more about her past drug abuse, her "embarrassing" arrest, and her eventual freedom.

The day of her arrest, she tells Earhardt in a preview of Sunday's interview, was doubly painful because police took her daughter into custody as well.

"It was horrible," she said. "I was so embarrassed, for my children to see this, for my children to hear this. For my daughter to be going down to a county jail with me. For her to have to go through what she did, and it was all my fault."

Police eventually dropped all charges against her daughter.

As a leader on the White House's prison reform efforts, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner also takes part in the Fox special. He was a key part of the administration's successful passage of the First Step Act which, through a series of reforms, aims to reduce recidivism.

Johnson's story "touched him" and offered a "real window" into how the justice system is "far from perfect," Kushner explains to Earhardt.

"The Alice Johnson Story" airs on Fox News this Sunday at 8 p.m. and will also be available on FOX Nation.
