Free from jail was no longer a dream for the couple sentenced brothers for life in a prison in Mississippi, USA. The road was wide open.
However, they will be released on one condition: the brother gives one of his kidneys to his brother.
Jamie and Gladys Scott get life imprisonment in 1994 for involvement in a robbery that killed two men.
The punishment the two women are reaping the controversy because the killing was not done by the Scott sisters, but by the men who rob with them. After all, they only managed to rob the money of U.S. $ 11 from the victims wallet.
Pressure from many quarters for the release of these brothers finally made the Governor of Mississippi, Haley Barbour, the yield also. He issued orders their bail on condition Gladys, 36, gave his kidney to Jamie, 38, who suffered kidney failure and must undergo dialysis every day.
Actually they can be considered a new release in 2014, but Barbour said the jail did not see them as a threat to society. Moreover, the cost of dialysis treatment and Jamie too big, and burdening the state.

"I think this is a victory. I spoke to Gladys and he was pleased to hear that, I'm sure she, too, "said Gladys and Jamie's lawyer, Chokwe Lumumba as quoted from page Associated Press, Wednesday, December 29, 2010.
Lumumba said that he did not question the condition of the kidneys to Jamie, because basically it will honour Gladys. It is not clear what causes kidney failure suffered by Jamie, but suspected due to various diseases for a long time.
Scott brothers have received advocacy assistance from various organizations, including the NAACP. Last September, hundreds of people marched in Jackson headed the governor's office demanding their release. Siblings are called have been the victims of injustice and receive punishment that is too heavy than they should.
