Kim Kardashian has thanked the Governor of Colorado for drastically reducing the 110-year prison sentence given to a 26-year-old truck driver in the US.

The reality star said the case of Rogel Aguilera-Mederos was a “clear example” of why mandatory minimum sentences should be abolished.

Aguilera-Mederos was given the lengthy sentence for vehicular homicide, following an accident that killed four people in Colorado in 2019.

This was reduced by Governor Jared Polis to 10 years on Thursday.

“While his new sentence is ten years, he will now have an opportunity to come home in five years and be with his son and wife.
