Take Action: Justice for the Scott Sisters
Jamie and Gladys Scott – the “Scott Sisters” – have been incarcerated in Mississippi for the last 15 years for an armed robbery that yielded $11, a crime in which they have consistently denied involvement. Neither of the Scott Sisters had a prior criminal record.
The presiding judge in their trial, Judge Marcus Gordon, has a history of racially biased rulings, including granting bail to the KKK murderer of the three civil rights workers Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner.
