Another man is able to walk free from prison, thanks to Kim Kardashian West. 

“We did it again! Had the best call w/ this lovely family & my attorney @msbkb who just won release for their loved one Jeffrey in Miami," she tweeted.

According to TMZ, Kardashian West is referring to Jeffrey Stringer, who has been in prison for the last 22 years on low-level drug offenses. 

Stringer was reportedly convicted of a low-level drug offense when he was 25. Since he had two drug priors, he was convicted to life in prison under the federal three strikes rule.

Stringer’s attorney, Brittany Barnett, told the website they were able to free Stringer using the First Step Act, which lets judges retroactively apply drug sentencing reforms.  

Kardashian West helped get that law passed after her visit with President Trump last year. He signed it into law in December. 

The reality star reportedly covered the bill for Stringer's legal fees. Stringer will be released Monday.

Kardashian West has been making headlines recently for her work on prison reform. 

She has helped get clemency for Cyntoia Brown and was instrumental in securing freedom for former inmates Alice Johnson and Matthew Charles. 

Kardashian West also made good on her promise to pay Charles’ rent for the next five years, after she found out he was having trouble finding an apartment due to his felony status.

The reality story also revealed last month that she's studying to become a lawyer.
