Holley told The Blast that she was on the "wonderful, emotional and fantastic phone call with Alice, Kim and Alice's lawyers".
Johnson had served 21 years of her life sentence after she was convicted on multiple criminal counts related to cocaine possession in 1996.
As for Johnson's next steps, she'll have regular check-ins with her parole officer and is making plans to meet Kardashian West soon. She was serving a life sentence for "leading a multi-million-dollar drug ring that dealt in tons of cocaine from 1991 to 1994", the Tennessean reported.
After the heartwarming reunion, Johnson and her family spent their first day together catching up before Johnson enjoyed a night's sleep on her own terms.More news: Trump, dairy farmers broaden attacks on Liberals as speedy metal tariffs urged
About a month before the meeting West praised Trump in a tweet, claiming that he and the president "are both dragon energy". "Nothing will ever trump this feeling". She said she "was not only moved to tears, but moved to action". "When I spoke with Attorney Shawn Holley and she disclosed the name of my benefactor, I had to take time to process and digest the news that you were the one she had been alluding to", she wrote.
"I'm still waiting to exhale!" she said in an email from prison, roughly 24 hours before she was released.
Guster says there is a chance Kim Kardashian-West's actions could spark a movement for other high profile people to advocate on of others with cases similar to Johnson's.
"I believe because I'm recognized now and my case is magnified through media, it has caught the attention of others", Johnson said.
