    Sisters released from life sentences on the condition that one donate a kidney to the other

    Two Mississippi sisters who have spent 16 years in prison over an $11 armed robbery will be released with an unusual stipulation: One must donate a kidney to the other.

    Gov. Haley Barbour, who suspended their sentences, said Wednesday that Gladys Scott, 36, must donate a kidney to her sister, Jamie, 38.

    Each of the Scott sisters got two life sentences after they were convicted by a jury of robbing two people near the town of Forest.

    Although they would be eligible for parole in 2014, the Department of Corrections "believes the sisters no longer pose a threat to society" and their incarceration is no longer necessary for rehabilitation, Barbour said in a statement.

    Jamie Scott's kidney dialysis treatment creates a substantial cost to the state, said Barbour.

    From the article it sounds like justice has been served and this is the right move.
