Dear Ms. Winfrey,

I am writing to you on behalf of Jamie and Gladys Scott. Their mother contacted you a while ago and now I would also like to add my voice to hers. Being an avid fan of yours for years and knowing that you have addressed injustice on your show, I feel it imperative that you please take a look at the case of the Scott Sisters.

In 1994, Jamie and Gladys Scott were wrongfully convicted in the state of Mississippi. A corrupt sheriff used coercion, threats, and harassment of witnesses to convict the Scott Sisters of armed robbery. This case is absolutely astounding, with transcripts stating that 11 dollars was stolen, at most. It's important to note that no one was murdered or even injured in the alleged robbery! An example of coercion came to light when one of the state's witnesses, a 14 year old, testified that he did not have an attorney present and did not even read the statement that he signed, which was prepared by the sheriff. It is also documented that one was told that if he did not cooperate that he would no longer be held in jail but be sent to prison where he would be raped. Jamie and Gladys Scott were convicted and sentenced to double-life, that's a Double Life Sentence Each! This may be one of the most unique cases of criminal injustice that you have ever investigated.

At the time of their unjust conviction these young women were 22 and 19 years old with five children between them. They have been incarcerated for 14+ years away from their devastated children and family. The Scott Sisters had no prior criminal record before this case. The emotional strain this burden has placed upon their family is immeasurable. Their children, grandchildren, and mother have been forced to wade in the waters of financial-hardship. Their father, though a strong man, passed away a few years back, following the illegal incarceration of his two beautiful daughters. Jamie and Gladys Scott's brother is currently fighting the war in Iraq.

I appreciate any time that you and your staff could take to look into this travesty of justice. These women have steadfastly maintained their innocence and the alleged crime they were charged with, even if guilty, would not warrant the horrific sentencing given to them. Please visit www.freethescottsisters.blogspot.com for any information at all that you will need regarding this case and PLEASE stand up for justice.

Sincerely,

(Your name and address)

Also, Oprah's last year is coming up and she should also be pressured to do a show on this case from her online contact form at https://www.oprah.com/plugform.jsp?plugId=220. Thank you very much in advance for mailing a letter of your own and filling in her online contact form, please become involved and let us know if you have done so!!

greetings firstly this be a very serious case and from all i have read bout it something is not right. Please allow me. I know the trial manuscripts must be posted. world wide first also there are many stones left unturned for example where where they when this petty crime happened and do they have witnesses and why are they still in jail? and in 15 years must of had an appeal am i right? something is not right and you state they killed no one and sentenced to life in jail. did they have long criminal records? and this should have been seen or needs to be seen by the supreme and superior courts!

how do one such as myself begin to absorb all which adds up to nothing but misjustice if all the facts are indeed here.
tell everyone where the transcripts from the trials can be obtained so ones like myself must see how in the world the life sentence and not a sentence of 60 days come into play.

I know you cannot just sentence any one to a life sentence if. no one died or no weapon was produced and the 2 whom them claim it to be never caused any trouble what so ever.
