What sort of judicial system puts two sisters away for life for being mere accomplices to a 1993 robbery? The teens who actually committed the robbery only served 2 years and have long been free. Neither Jamie nor Gladys Scott had a criminal record and the judge never explained why the Scott sisters deserved such severe sentences.

 Judge Marcus Gordon, who presided over this case, has a history of racially biased rulings. Sixteen years later, the Scott sisters are still in prison. And if Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour doesn’t intervene, they will die in prison — all over a robbery of $11. 

Please help get the word out about this horrific injustice. Sign the NAACP petition to Governor Barbour asking him to free the Scott sisters:
