Dear Supporters:

We are in need of your urgent assistance. Because of the continuous exposure that this case has received Jamie Scott #19197 is being constantly harassed by guards and was placed in the “hole” for 23 days. Jamie is now very depressed and on medication which is not a good sign at all.  Our personal feelings are that she was set up by guards, lied on and thrown in the “hole” because of her continuous strength and determination to fight for freedom.
In addition, her privileges to attend school, work and conduct research in the law library have been stripped away. Please assist us in contacting the following persons, let them know that the public is watching this case and ask for a thorough investigation into the lies which have caused Jamie Scott#19197 to be harassed, stripped of privileges and thrown into the “hole”

Dear Supporters:

Please assist us in the campaign to freedom for the Scott Sisters by writing US Attorney General Eric Holder. Mr. Holder's office has not responded to our formal complaint(s) and the Civil Rights Division has responded to Mrs. Rasco saying that they cannot assist because the case has passed the statutory limits/deadline of 5 years. Now, this is the untruth. Mrs. Rasco started writing the Civil Rights Division 14 years ago.

The Honorable Attorney General Holder:

I am writing to request that you investigate the case of Jamie and Gladys Scott. The Scott Sisters were given double life sentences each in October of 1994 for armed robbery in the state of Mississippi. No one was injured or murdered. One witness states that about 11 dollars was netted in the armed robbery. All witnesses and victims of this crime have testified that the Scott Sisters were not involved in the robbery. Witnesses testified that they were coerced and threatened to lie on the Scott Sisters.

A 14 year old witness testified that he signed a statement which was prepared for him before he entered Deputy Sheriff Marvin Williams' Office. This statement was signed by the 14 year old without an attorney present. He was told that he would be released from the local jail the next morning if he signed it. He was not released.

This is an egregious wrongful conviction and the Scott Sisters have suffered now 14 years 8 months of double life sentences.

Jamie and Gladys Scott are housed in Pearl, Mississippi. Their ID numbers are Jamie Scott #19197 and Gladys Scott # 19142.
