(CNN) - After 16 years in prison, two Mississippi sisters were released Friday on the condition that one donate a kidney to the other.
Gov. Haley Barbour suspended the sentences of Gladys Scott, 36, and Jaime Scott, 39, who were serving life sentences for armed robbery. Gladys Scott agreed to donate a kidney to her sister, who according to their lawyer, is gravely ill.
The attorney for Gladys and Jamie, Chokwe Lumumba, explains to American Morning's T.J. Holmes the terms of their release.
