Sisters in kidney donation case leave Miss. prison - USATODAY.com

Sisters in kidney donation case leave Miss. prison - USATODAY.com: "Two imprisoned sisters whose life sentences were suspended on the condition that one donates a kidney to the other have been released from a Mississippi prison.
Last week, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour agreed to indefinitely suspend the life sentences of Jamie and Gladys Scott, which they received for their part in a 1993 armed robbery that court records say netted between $11 and $200.

In agreeing to release the sisters, Barbour noted the high cost — nearly $200,000 a year — of providing dialysis treatment to Jamie Scott and conditioned Gladys Scott's release on her donating a kidney to her sister.

'(Gladys) asked for the opportunity to give her sister a kidney and we're making that opportunity available to her,' the Republican governor said in a statement."
