PEARL, Miss. (AP) — Sisters Jamie and Gladys Scott left prison on Friday for the first time in 16 years, yelling, “We’re free!” and “God bless y’all!” as they pulled away in a silver SUV. That freedom, though, comes with an unusual condition: Gladys has one year to donate a kidney to her ailing sister.
