WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on Kim Kardashian West at the White House (all times local):

5:05 p.m.

Reality television star Kim Kardashian West has arrived at the White House for a meeting with presidential senior adviser Jared Kushner.

Kardashian West was seen posing for photos in front of the West Wing before entering to discuss criminal justice reform with Kushner, the president's son-in-law.

Kardashian West has urged the president to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, who is serving a life sentence without parole for a nonviolent drug offense.

Attorney Brittany K. Barnett, who says she's part of Johnson's legal team, says Kardashian West also hopes to meet with President Donald Trump to discuss the case.

Kardashian West's husband, rapper Kanye West, sparked a social media maelstrom earlier this month with his support for Trump.

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West was heading to the White House to make a star-powered case for prison reform and advocate on behalf of a woman serving a life sentence.

Kardashian West has urged the president to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, 63, who is serving a life sentence without parole for a nonviolent drug offense.

In an interview with Mic, Kardashian West said she'd been moved by Johnson's story after seeing a video by the news outlet.

"I think that she really deserves a second chance at life," Kardashian told Mic. "I'll do whatever it takes to get her out."
