Kim Kardashian visits a prisoner sentenced to death in San Quentin State Prison

Kim Kardashian's social justice crusade has led her to death row.

The star of the reality show spent two hours inside San Quentin State Prison in California, one of the most notorious prisons in the United States, as part of his last crusade to badbadinate the murdered convict Kevin Cooper, according to TMZ.

"Kim decided to make a visit so she could have her first face-to-face encounter with the boy she's trying to free," the site said, saying the 38-year-old star of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" was dressed in black.

She left "more convinced than ever that he was framed," said TMZ.

The 61-year-old man sentenced to death was convicted in 1985 of four murders, including two 10-year-olds, but has maintained his innocence.

Kardashian, who is studying to be a lawyer to help her in her social justice mission, publicly announced her participation in the Cooper case last year.

"Governor Brown, can you please test Kevin Cooper's DNA?" Kardashian tweeted then California Governor Edmund Brown last June.

Proponents of Cooper have argued that the DNA found on a shirt Cooper says he never wore should be re-badyzed.

The current Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, ordered DNA tests, with results yet to be announced, according to TMZ.

Newsom is also an opponent to the death penalty and has decided to suspend all executions while in office.

Earlier this month, it was learned that Kardashian had silently funded a successful campaign to free 17 federal inmates serving life sentences for low-level drug offenses in the past three months.
