Jamie Scott of the Scott Sisters was able to call her mother tonight and report that thanks to all of the calls that came into the prison, she was seen by a doctor and is receiving medication. She stated that she was not seriously injured when she fell on the oil that was placed on the shower floor.
Although Jamie was able to receive insulin, she stated that she had been without her blood pressure medicine for several months due to there not being a generic version available that the state would pay for.
She wanted to make certain that each and every person who responded to our urgent calls for assistance knew how much she appreciated the overwhelming response and remarked it was noted by the staff there when she was seen for medical treatment.
Thank you especially from Mrs. Evelyn Rasco, who has felt a tremendous burden relieved by just being able to know that her daughter is not seriously injured, though still in unjust captivity.
9/8/09 UPDATE: Mrs. Rasco received word from the prison that Jamie was seen by the head of the medical department and will be moved to the Medical Building. Her proper blood pressure medication will be ordered and paid for. Mrs. Rasco and family are extremely grateful for all of the supporters making this happen, there is no doubt that it would not have otherwise!
Mrs. Rasco received an emergency call at 6:00 a.m. from inside the prison regarding her daughter, JAMIE SCOTT #19197.
She was told that oil was placed in the shower which caused to Jamie to fall and that she was taken away. No one knows how badly she may be hurt, or even where she is!
WHERE IS JAMIE SCOTT?
When i called the prison (Central Mississippi Corrections Facility)
at (601) 932-2880, i was told by a Nurse Wilson that no one, not even the inmate's mother, could be told whether or not Jamie Scott is in one of their hospital beds! i was told that the only other person i could speak to about it is Paxton Paige when he returned from holiday on Tuesday, and that he would tell me the exact same thing.
Calls have been made to the local hospital where prisoners are taken when they need treatment outside of the facility, but Jamie Scott has not been admitted there.
Mrs. Rasco needs to get answers some kind of way before Tuesday! We were already aware of a health emergency for Jamie and with this additional news we need to not only ascertain whether she is receiving her medications, but if she has suffered injuries and if so, what they are, and if she is receiving proper medical attention for them.
Any support that can be offered would be greatly appreciated!
We need help getting this information! Mrs. Rasco's computer is down temporarily, so please communicate at my address
Thank you and forward ever!

Jamie Scott is a diabetic with high blood pressure and her mother, Mrs. Rasco, was recently informed that she has not been receiving her medications. Jamie requires two insulin shots per day, regular sugar checks, as well as pills for her blood pressure. Mrs. Rasco is fearful for her daughter's life!
Many of us have been calling the prison today to try and reach someone to discuss this with and have been getting the unaround.

9/1/09 -- UPDATE: JAMIE SCOTT has been moved to a new bldg. and placed under even stricter supervision than before, she is not permitted to go anywhere at all, not even church. The Scott Sisters' greatest fear is being separated and the worry right now is that the Deputy Warden is setting the situation up to send Jamie to another prison. We need an attorney who works in the civil rights area to look into what's happening to Jamie right now and your help is urgently needed in getting the word out!
We also continue to need your urgent support, please make those calls and send in your letters today and repost the action alert internet-wide!!
