"Thank you so much Governor Stitt for commuting Julius Jones sentence to life without parole and stopping his execution today," the reality star business mogul and criminal justice advocate wrote on Twitter.


In a lengthy thread, Kardashian wrote that she had spent the majority of the day Wednesday speaking with Jones over the phone.

"He said if you are doing something your mom wouldn’t approve of then you shouldn’t be doing it. It’s that simple!" Kardashian wrote, sharing what she thought would be his final words of wisdom.

Stitt on Thursday announced his decision to commute Jones's sentence "after prayerful consideration and reviewing materials presented by all sides of this case."

Stitt had faced mounting pressure, including from Kardashian, to commute the sentence of Jones, who was convicted of first-degree murder in a 1999 killing.

"I’m so grateful to everyone who used their voice and helped to save Julius’s life today. Thank you to the parole board and Governor Stitt," Kardashian added.

Stitt's decision came after the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board voted earlier this month to recommend that Jones's sentence be commuted in light of doubts surrounding evidence from the case.
