Kim Kardashian is “grateful” that Julius Jones is still alive. The reality star publicly thanked Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt for reversing Jones’ death sentence, hours before he was to be executed. Jones, 41, was charged and convicted of murder during a car crash in 1999 and has maintained his innocence.

Kardashian, who helped raise awareness of the matter, shared a poignant message from Jones when she “spent most of my day on the phone” with him on Wednesday.

“While I was talking on the phone with him, someone came into the room to try to give him his anti-anxiety medication, which you are usually forced to take before you are executed, so you can be more calm about the fact that you are being executed, “she wrote on social media. “But Julius refused because he said he has a clear conscience, and it gives him peace knowing he is innocent and did not want to be stunned.”

Jones claims his co-defendant, Christopher Jordan, shot the victim, Paul Howell. Jordan was released from prison after 15 years as part of a complaints agreement.

Kardashian said Jones wants to encourage people to “always make sure you do the right thing.”

“The most important thing is that you always have to make sure you do the right thing. Julius hung out with the wrong audience and that got him in the position he is in today,” she told Jones. “He said that if you’re doing something your mother would not approve of, then you should not do it. It’s that simple!”

Governor Stitt reduced Jones’ sentence to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The move came after many public figures spoke for him. The governor said he made the decision “after prayerful consideration and review of materials presented by all sides of this case.”
