Jamie and Gladys Scott both went before the Mississippi Board of Pardons and Parole today. Results from this hearing are unknown at this time. Please continue to call and e-mail governor Haley Barbour's Office in support oftheir release. Each call and e-mail is very important!

*Whether the Scott sisters are innocent or guilty, any reasonable person can see that the punishment they received does not fit the crime. In addition, Jamie Scott is very ill and suffering from stage 5 renal (kidney) failure. Currently, it’s up to Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour to commute their sentences and pardon them. *
*Each sister is currently serving double life sentences each for an $11 robbery – that's 4 life sentences between the two sisters. To date the sisters have been in prison 16 years. Let governor Barbour know that you 're seeking justice for the Scott sisters now!*

I am writing to ask you to please let the Scott Sisters out on executive clemency or pardon. The Scott sisters were extremely over sentenced for a crime where no one was injured or died. Two consecutive life sentences each for such a crime is abhorrent. Jamie Scott is not in good health with both of her kidney's failing. This family has suffered enough. Plus it is a financial burden on the State of Mississippi and its taxpayers. Please find it in your hearts to release these women.
