Woman donates kidney to officer who arrested her

From 2007 until 2012, Jocelynn James of Franklin County, Alabama, was addicted to opioids and support her drug habit by stealing and breaking the law. Officer Terrell Potter arrested her multiple times. Now the woman is saving Potter's life, because she believes he saved hers.

Last November the officer learned he needed a new kidney, but doctors said the wait would be seven or eight years. As soon as Ms. James saw the Facebook post about Potter, she heard God tell her to donate her organ, and the two were a perfect match. The surgery went extremely well. Ms. James currently runs a non-profit organization that provides drug counseling to women, and this November she will celebrate eight years sober. The former officer now considers her like "another daughter," saying, "It's made a great relationship and bond between us."
