MISSISSIPPI JUSTICE: DOUBLE-LIFE EACH FOR $11.00!
On 12/24/93, the Scott County Sheriff’s Department arrested Jamie and Gladys Scott for armed robbery even though three young males, ranging from ages 14 to 18, confessed to committing the crime and the women have unwaveringly maintained their complete innocence. Despite this, the corrupt Mississippi sheriff used coercion, threats, and harassment to compel them to turn state’s evidence against the Scott sisters due to a long-standing vendetta against a family member. The Judge in the case, Marcus Gordon, has an extensive racist past that includes granting bail to the KKK murderer of 3 civil rights workers in 1964. In 10/94 the Scott Sisters were sentenced to extraordinary double-life terms each, despite the facts that no one was harmed, neither sister had prior convictions, & the amount alleged to have been taken was $11.00! Even if they were guilty as charged, this sentence is completely outrageous and cruel!
THE SCOTT SISTERS ARE NOW IN THEIR 16th YEAR OF UNJUST IMPRISONMENT! WE NEED YOU TO PLEASE HELP TO MAKE THIS A NATIONAL NEWS STORY!
Jamie Scott entered prison 16+ years ago as a healthy young woman but now suffers from complete renal failure requiring thrice weekly dialysis and is suffering from infections and cut-rate medical mistreatment in the prison inﬁrmary.
