Garridos Confess To Dugard Kidnapping

The Antioch couple charged with abducting Jayce Lee Dugard from a South Lake Tahoe bus stop in 1991 and holding her captive for 18 years have made a ‘full confession’ in the case, an attorney revealed Monday.
Attorney Stephen Tapson, who represents Nancy Garrido, told reporters Monday outside court that his client and her husband, Phillip Garrido, were re-interviewed by detectives during the last month.
“Mr. and Mrs. Garrido have given full complete statements to the sheriff’s department in the last month,” Tapson said. “Being honest with them, frankly in the hopes of mercy on behalf of Mr. Garrido for Mrs. Garrido. Unfortunately, the quality of mercy is strained in El Dorado County. So as of the moment the current offer (to Nancy Garrido) is 241 years, eight months to life.”
Tapson said the couple admitted snatching Dugard, then 11, from a South Lake Tahoe street.
“No question about it – a full confession,” he told reporters. “She’s guilty obviously of kidnapping and a bunch of other charges but I think based what happened after all the stuff started to become the bizarre family that she should be able to at least walk on the beach with a walker sometime before she dies.”
Tapson said the couple have not worked out a plea deal, but prosecutors have proposed sentencing Phillip Garrido to 440 years in prison and his wife to more than 241 years.
The lawyer says Dugard was present during one of Nancy Garrido's interviews, apparently the first time the women had been face-to-face since the couple was arrested in 2009.

Phillip and Nancy Garrido have confessed to their roles in the abduction and years-long sexual bondage of Jaycee Dugard near Antioch, with Nancy Garrido giving one interview to investigators while Dugard sat in the room, Nancy Garrido's lawyer said Monday outside court.
Before a bank of TV cameras, Stephen Tapson appealed to Dugard, now 30, to weigh in on a sentence for the woman who helped snatch 11-year-old Jaycee off her South Lake Tahoe street in 1991 and hold her in confinement for years.
"Jaycee, please talk," he said.
Tapson said El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson has offered a sentence of 241 years to life to Nancy Garrido, 55, in a plea deal that would spare Dugard and her two teenage daughters — fathered by Phillip Garrido — from testifying at a trial.
The deal for Phillip Garrido amounts to 440 years to life in prison, Tapson said. Nancy Garrido participated in the kidnapping and false imprisonment of Dugard, but never physically in the sexual abuse, he said.
"She was their mother. She delivered the kids. She fed them, took them places," Tapson said. "She's guilty, obviously, of kidnapping and a bunch of other charges, (but) she should at least be able to walk the beach with a walker at some time."
Pierson declined to comment following a brief court hearing Monday afternoon in which Judge Douglas Phimister postponed an arraignment for Phillip Garrido, 59, until March 17.
Nancy Garrido already has pleaded not guilty to an 18-count indictment that includes several counts of kidnapping, kidnapping for sexual purposes, forcible rape and forcible lewd acts upon a child. It also includes 13 special allegations.
The interview of Nancy Garrido in Dugard's presence took place several months ago in a sheriff's bureau office in Placerville. Dugard was described as an observer who could verify the accuracy of Nancy Garrido's statements.
They had not seen each other since police arrested the Garridos at a Concord parole office in August, 2009.
Nancy Garrido was in tears when she saw Dugard, Tapson said. A source familiar with the investigation said Dugard has moved on from the couple, for whom she lied to police before their arrests.
"She does not have any feelings at all for them and probably will never again," the source said. "She's strong."
Tapson said the Garrido's made their confessions "frankly, in the hope for mercy." Without a deal, he said, he would likely argue at trial that Nancy Garrido fell under her husband's mind control.
Authorities say the couple held Dugard captive for 18 years in a hidden warren of sheds, tents and outbuildings that state parole officials monitoring Phillip Garrido never found.
They claim that Phillip Garrido videotaped Jaycee's sexual abuse over the course of several years following her abduction and into the start of her first teen pregnancy. Neither girl ever received formal schooling or medical care.
Earlier this month, Phillip Garrido's lawyer stipulated to his mental competency, waiving a jury trial on the issue. Discussions then began for a plea deal.
Phillip Garrido continues to cultivate a salt-and-pepper beard and wore orange jail scrubs Monday, sitting in the back row of the jury box with his lawyer. Several seats away sat his wife, who has taken to shielding her face from media with her graying mane.
El Dorado County Judge Douglas Phimister earlier this month suspended monthly phone chats between them from the Placerville jail, where they have remained since their arrests.
On Monday, Phimister refused to unseal grand jury transcripts and other court records. Bay Area News Group and other media are seeking the documents, which include Phillip Garrido's mental health records and detailed testimony that Dugard gave to the grand jury. Phimister, in a 10-page ruling, found that releasing the transcripts and health records before jury selection would prejudice the couple's right to a fair trial.
Phillip Garrido, a convicted rapist on lifetime parole, had visited the UC-Berkeley campus with the two girls a day before the arrests, seeking a permit to espouse his unique religious views on campus. Two wary campus officials ran a check and called his parole officer. He showed up at the parole office with his wife, Jaycee and the two girls, leading to hours of questioning and, ultimately, the couple's arrest.

Oh hell no she should not be released ever, she gave up all of her human rights when she helped kidnap Jaycee. This woman could have called authorities but instead she let her husband take away Jaycee's innocence, then her teenage years and her young womanhood years. 241 years sounds good to me.

Does he really expect her to plead for leniency for this woman!? If she talks, she should tell how this woman helped keep her enslaved and sexually abused for 18 years! If I remember correctly, there was even a period of time that Garrido was in prison, and she still kept her there...So mercy? umno

A source familiar with the investigation said Dugard has moved on from the couple, for whom she lied to police before their arrests.
"She does not have any feelings at all for them and probably will never again," the source said. "She's strong."

You don't owe them a thing, Jaycee! After what they've done to you, turn your back and walk away...

I hope this will give Jaycee and her daughters some peace. Jaycee appears to be doing well considering what she has been through. I wonder if some publishing company has offered her lots of money for a book deal?

I hope if they have, she doesn't take them up on it. Oprah has been salivating to get Jaycee on her show as this is her final season. IMHO, Jaycee is staying behind the scenes and I hope she continues to.

I am not at all surprised by their confession. There was absolutely no way any jury member would deem them not guilty.

Leniency? No...just NO!! 🇳🇴

Jaycee Dugard Kidnapping Confession Details Revealed

Phillip and Nancy Garrido have given lengthy police interviews confessing to the 1991 abduction of Jaycee Dugard, who attended a confessional session and met Nancy face-to-face afterwards – leaving Nancy in tears, an attorney says.

Phillip Garrido, 59, who had never opened up to police, gave an all-day confession on Feb. 22, and Nancy, 55, who did cooperate shortly after Dugard’s recovery in August 2009, gave a few interviews in recent months, Nancy's lawyer Stephen Tapson tells PEOPLE.

Dugard, now 30, observed over closed-circuit television Nancy’s most recent interview in early December so that she could tell detectives if Nancy was being truthful. After the interview, the two women talked in person in the room for 10 minutes, according to Tapson.

Tapson said he could not reveal what the two women discussed, but he did say that Nancy felt dejected over what she perceived as Jaycee's lack of emotion or warmth during the meeting.

"Nancy was tearful after the interview because she's sad and she misses her," Tapson added.

He said he did not believe Jaycee has also met with Phillip Garrido since his arrest. An attorney for Phillip had no immediate comment.
During the police interviews, the Garridos confessed that, in 1991, they drove to Reno, bought a stun gun and then drove to South Lake Tahoe – an area that Phillip Garrido was very familiar with – so they could snatch a girl. Jaycee was 11 at the time, according to Tapson.

Nancy has confessed that she jumped out of the car, used the stun gun on Jaycee as she walked to her school bus stop, and pushed Jayceee into the car so the couple could bring her to their home in Antioch, Calif.

Tapson says he decided to share the details Monday after a breakdown in plea negotiations. He says he was led to believe that if the Garridos fully cooperated with detectives, Nancy would be offered a short enough sentence that she will not die in prison.

Instead, Tapson says, he received an offer Friday from El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson of 240 years and eight months. Tapson asked Pierson on Monday if he was serious, and Pierson said that he was.

Pierson tells PEOPLE he has no comment on Tapson's remarks.

A Plea to Jaycee for Help

Tapson says a plea deal would have spared Jaycee and her two daughters with Phillip from having to testify at a trial, but it now appears that there will indeed be a trial, perhaps in the fall.

He appealed before TV cameras for Jaycee to intervene on Nancy's behalf. "Jaycee, please talk," he said.

Tapson says he will argue at trial that Nancy Garrido was a young and naïve woman at the time who was heavily influenced by Phillip Garrido – and that they were both under the influence of meth.

"I will claim that she had Stockholm Syndrome, as well as the world's worst case of … taste in men," Tapson says.

Jaycee Dugard suspect to judge: I'm not guilty


PLACERVILLE, Calif. - A convicted sex offender pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of kidnapping and raping a Northern California girl when she was 11 and holding her captive for nearly two decades.

The plea came as a surprise after an attorney said Phillip Garrido had made a deal with prosecutors to plead guilty. It would have sent him to prison for the rest of his life.

But Phillip Garrido's attorney, Susan Gellman, contended the grand jury was improperly selected and did not act appropriately during its proceedings. Gellman did not elaborate in court.

"There are issues about the process itself before the grand jury," said Judge Doug Phimister.

Garrido, who fathered the two children of victim Jaycee Dugard, made the plea to an amended indictment that added allegations of kidnapping of a person under 14, kidnapping for sexual purposes and other claims.

His wife, Nancy Garrido, also pleaded not guilty to the charges. The next hearing was set for May 5, and the trial for Aug. 1.

Both defendants were in court for the 10-minute hearing, wearing orange jail uniforms. They didn't speak, and neither showed much emotion during the hearing.
Last week, an agreement was outlined during a closed-door meeting that attorney Stephen Tapson said he attended with prosecutors, the public defender representing Garrido and the judge presiding over the highly publicized case.

The case attracted international attention after Dugard surfaced in August 2009 and authorities said she and her children had lived in a hidden compound of tents and sheds in the Garridos' backyard in Antioch, never attending school or receiving medical attention.

Phillip and Nancy Garrido were both charged with 18 counts of kidnapping, rape, false imprisonment, child pornography and committing lewd acts on a child.

If convicted on all counts, the maximum sentence for Nancy Garrido would be 181 years, while Phillip Garrido could get 431 years, according to El Dorado County Deputy District Attorney James Clinchard.

Phillip Garrido's criminal proceedings were halted for more than four months while his mental competency to stand trial was under evaluation.

Both defendants gave full confessions to authorities and expressed interest in plea bargains that would spare Dugard and her two daughters — now 13 and 16 — from having to testify, Tapson said.

Garridos plead guilty in Jaycee Dugard kidnapping

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Phillip and Nancy Garrido pleaded guilty Thursday to the kidnapping and sexual assault of Jaycee Dugard, whom they held captive from age 11 through 29, the El Dorado County, California, district attorney said.
Both Garridos will receive life in prison at a sentencing hearing June 2, District Attorney Vern Pierson said in a statement.
The Garridos abducted Dugard when she was 11, and they held her in a hidden compound on their home's grounds in Antioch, California.
Dugard was snatched from the street in front of her home in South Lake Tahoe, California, in 1991. Authorities found her in 2009.
Phillip Garrido, a registered sex offender on parole at the time of his arrest, is accused of fathering two girls with Dugard during her captivity.
"The enormity of the defendants' actions has caused tremendous pain and suffering to Jaycee, her mother, Terry Probyn, and their family," Pierson said in a statement.
"With a guilty plea by both defendants, Terry, Jaycee and her children can now be spared the grief and trauma of having to be dragged into the court process to testify at a jury trial," Pierson said.
California law doesn't provide for a death penalty or a life sentence without possibility of parole for the offenses committed by the Garridos, Pierson said.
Phillip Garrido pleaded guilty to one count of kidnapping and 13 counts of sexual assault, Pierson said. He faces a maximum possible sentence of 431 years to life in prison, and he has waived his right to appeal, Pierson said.
Nancy Garrido pleaded guilty to one count of kidnapping and one count of rape by force, and to California's "one strike" rape law, Pierson said.
She will be sentenced to the negotiated disposition of life in prison, Pierson said. She will receive a 25-years-to-life sentence under the "one strike" rape law, plus 11 years, which is the maximum possible sentence for the kidnapping charges based upon the sentencing laws in 1991, Pierson said.
Nancy Garrido also has waived her right to appeal, prosecutors said. Her plea was offered contingent upon Phillip Garrido pleading guilty and waiving his right to appeal, prosecutors said.

What I've bolded is beyond ridiculous. Who lives to be 431? Really..it's life in prison with no possibility of parole.

At least they plead guilty and waived any rights. Not that they would have had rights anyway. These are POS's that don't deserve the air they breathe, as Sly said.

Sly, you start AHA and I will most definitely join!

Man who kidnapped CA girl to spend life in prison

THURSDAY, JUNE 2, 2011
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
THE RECORD

PLACERVILLE, Calif. — A serial sex offender was ordered Thursday to spend the rest of his life in prison after the California woman he kidnapped, raped and held captive for 18 years said he and his wife had stolen her life.

Victim Jaycee Dugard was 11 when she was abducted by Phillip and Nancy Garrido as her stepfather watched her walk toward a school bus. She gave birth to two daughters fathered by Garrido while he held her in a secret backyard compound.

The defendants, both wearing orange jumpsuits, made no eye contact with anyone in the courtroom and kept their heads down as Dugard's mother, Terry Probyn, read her daughter's statement at the hearing. Dugard, now 31, was not present in court.

"I chose not to be here today because I refuse to waste another second of my life in your presence," Dugard wrote in a portion of the statement directed to Phillip Garrido. "Everything you ever did to me was wrong and I hope one day you will see that.

"I hated every second of every day for 18 years," she said "You stole my life and that of my family."

It was Dugard's first public statement since she was found 22 months ago.

El Dorado County Superior Judge Douglas Phimister imposed the maximum possible sentence of 431 years to life on 60-year-old Phillip Garrido, calling his treatment of Dugard evil and reprehensible.

Phimister revealed several new details about Dugard's abduction, saying Phillip Garrido used a Taser to subdue her and threatened to stun her again if she tried to escape.

"Basically what you did was you took a human being and turned them into a chattel, a piece of furniture, to be used by you at your whim," the judge said. "You reinvented slavery, that's what you did."

Phimister added that the Garridos had "gone shopping" for a young girl to abduct the day they snatched Dugard.

In a presentencing memo justifying a sentence of hundreds of years for Phillip Garrido, District Attorney Vern Pierson said Dugard spent the first one-and-a-half years after her kidnapping locked in a backyard shed.

She did not leave the backyard for the first four years after her abduction.

Phillip Garrido, who was on parole for a 1976 rape when Dugard was abducted, pleaded guilty to kidnapping and 13 sexual assault charges, including six counts of rape and seven counts of committing lewd acts captured on video.

His plea was part of a deal with prosecutors that saw Nancy Garrido, 55, sentenced to 36 years to life after pleading guilty to kidnapping and rape.

The deal was designed, in part, to spare Dugard and her children from having to testify at a trial.

In her statement, Dugard called Phillip Garrido a liar and said what Nancy Garrido did to her was evil. She said she hoped both of them would have as many sleepless nights as she had.

"There is no God in the universe that would condone your actions," Dugard said in a portion of the statement directed at Nancy Garrido.

Dugard also said she was doing well now and told Phillip Garrido "you do not matter anymore."

Dugard, who has written a memoir set to be published next month, has strived to preserve her privacy since she was identified during a chance meeting with Phillip Garrido's parole officer.

The judge marveled that Garrido was able to get paroled for a 1976 rape and kidnapping conviction after only 11 years, saying the defendant had been able to work the penal system to his advantage.

Phimister said Garrido continued fooling psychiatrists and parole officers in the years he held Dugard.

As the judge spoke, Garrido remained motionless and stared straight ahead without speaking.

Phillip Garrido's lawyer Susan Gellman read a statement on her client's behalf.

"He has accepted responsibility for his actions and he has done this without any expectation of leniency and has done this because he wanted to spare everyone, especially Miss Dugard and her children, a trial," Gellman said

Gellman urged the judge to impose a lighter sentence in light of what she described as Garrido's significant mental health issues.

"I'm not minimizing what happened in this case. It was a terrible thing that happened here, he is remorseful," she said. "But one lifetime to me seems to be enough."

The judge said he recognized that Garrido had psychological problems but said he thought the sentence was appropriate.

After Nancy Garrido was sentenced, her attorney Stephen Tapson told reporters a judge had denied her request to see her husband one last time.

"She said words are not enough and what I did was evil and every time I look in the mirror it reminds me of how evil I was," Tapson said. "She said from the get-go, "I don't want to go to trial, I don't want to put Jaycee and those kids through that.'"

Dugard was grabbed by Nancy Garrido from the South Lake Tahoe street where her family lived and forced into a car driven by Phillip Garrido on June 10, 1991.

Authorities have said the couple drove the girl 168 miles south to their home in Antioch and held her prisoner there for the next 18 years, four months and 16 days. At first, she was locked in the shed then confined to a series of tents she would come to share with the daughters fathered by Phillip Garrido and delivered by his wife.

The defendants were arrested in August 2009 after Phillip Garrido inexplicably brought his ragtag clan to a meeting with his parole officer, who had no idea the convicted rapist had been living with a young woman and two girls he described as his nieces.

Her reappearance proved a costly embarrassment for California parole officials, who had to explain how a parolee under intensive supervision could live with his victim and have children with her undetected.

The state last year paid Dugard a $20 million settlement under which officials acknowledged repeated mistakes were made by parole agents responsible for monitoring Garrido. California has since increased monitoring of sex offenders.

Normal Parts of GJ testimony released/ People Magazine

Post by Nama on Thu Jun 02, 2011 11:00 pm

With her abductors pleading guilty and sentenced to life in prison, the details are finally coming out about the fear and pain that the then-11-year-old Jaycee Dugard endured during her kidnapping.

Dugard, now 31, described her ordeal in testimony before a grand jury last September, and on Thursday the court released a heavily redacted transcript. But even in the shortened form, the transcript's account – the first to be made public – is chilling.

Dugard says she was walking to the school bus 20 years ago outside her family's South Lake Tahoe home when someone's hand shot out of a car window "and I feel this shock" from what she later found out was a stun gun.

Jaycee says she stumbled into the bushes.

"I feel like my whole body wouldn't work. It was tingly and nothing works," she testified.

Then, she says, her abductors threw a blanket over her and drove off, and she believes that she blacked out.

After some time, she says they reached a destination and one of her kidnappers, Phillip Garrido, put the blanket back over her and warned her to be quiet.

"He said I had to be really quiet and there was dogs patrolling the area," Jaycee testified. "He said he had Dobermans and that if I was to run or, you know, try to do anything, that they would come after me."

El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Douglas Phimister released the documents – after deleting details of sexual assault – after the Garridos were sentenced. Phillip Garrido received 431 years to life and Nancy Garrido received 36 years.

Normal Re: Garridos Confess To Jaycee Dugard Kidnapping on 2/28/2011 / Details Now Revealed//Phillip Garrido NOW PLEADS NOT GUILTY!/BOTH PLEAD GUILTY!! Garrido sentenced to Life in Prison!!

In addition to reading a victim impact statement by her daughter, Terry Probyn delivered her own statement at the sentencing of Phillip and Nancy Garrido, June 2, 2011.

"I am Terry Probyn, and my oldest daughter is Jaycee Lee Dugard. On May 3rd, 1980, at 10:52 at night, Jaycee was born, my precious little baby daughter: healthy and happy to be here, a true miracle and certainly a gift from God. All 6 pounds, 4 ounces, she was mine to love, to nurture, to take care of. She was a part of me, my pride and joy — blonde hair, blue eyes, my sweet baby girl. She would smile and coo, and my whole world lit up. I lived and breathed for that baby. She is what life is worth living for.
"We had some rough times, as any new mother would attest to. When her belly hurt and she couldn't sleep at night, we would rock in the rocking chair for hours on end, and I would sing to her: 'You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray, you'll never know, dear, how much I love you, please don't take my sunshine away.'
"No matter how bad that sounded, it was what soothed her, and that is all that mattered. We grew together for eleven years, my warm embrace, my devoted attention, our unconditional love for each other. I protected her innocence and her purity. She was sweet and kindhearted, a gentle, quiet, compassionate soul. Together forever, bonded for life, a little mini me.
"And then, on June, 10th, 1991, my world went dark. My sunshine was taken away. I asked God, 'What did I do wrong? Why am I being punished? How could anyone with a heart or a conscience or a soul for that matter, take an innocent child away from its mother? How could someone take away the one person in this world that I loved so deeply? Where is she? Is she cold, is she hungry, is she hurt?'
"I begged, I pleaded, I cried, I ranted and raved. I went crazy and thought I was going to go insane. I needed so desperately, to hold her and comfort her and tell her that i loved her. My baby was gone and all of my dreams turned to nightmares, dreadful nightmarish thoughts of her bondage and of her suffering.
"She was a vulnerable child, and I was unable to help her. A helplessness that turned into despair and misery and depression. I was lost without her but determined not to ever give up hope. I promised, Please God, wrap your arms around her and keep her alive, keep her spirit safe, and I will never give up looking for her. Please God, place a burden so heavy on whoever would do such an evil thing that they would let her go, and she could come back home to me.
"I could hear her crying, not with my ears but with my heart. I could feel her pain, not with my body but again with my heart, completely unbearable and debilitating. For eighteen excruciating years, I endured a huge gaping hole in my heart that some evil being had put their hand into and had ripped out. For eighteen agonizing years, I guarded what little I had left and lived in hell on this earth.
"It was you, Nancy Garrido, and you, Phillip Garrido, that broke my heart. You took something that didn't belong to you. You hurt my baby.
"I hate you both for the torment and anguish you put my daughter, myself, and my family through. I am nauseous at the thought of the sexual exploitation and the brutal abuse she endured at your uncaring hand. I am sickened by the reality that she had to suffer your cruel and heartless imprisonment for so long. You are the epitome of disgust, and no amount of jail time or even death will cleanse your corrupt souls. You do not deserve to live or die or even exist. Your mother did not give you life to destroy others' lives, and I can guarantee that she would be ashamed to know she bore evil.
You are nothing — other than selfish, self-serving, self-gratifying monsters. What you have done to my daughters, my granddaughters, my family and myself is unforgiveable and the only satisfaction for me is that I know you will never lay eyes on my daughter again. And more importantly, you will never lay eyes on her two daughters again, either.
"Her daughters know what you did to their mother. They realize your backyard was a prison and understand your filthy, despicable secret. They are aware that they have been deceived, and I am here to tell you that there is no love lost.
"I am expecting that all I have to say today will fall on deaf ears, but this testimony is not for you. It is for me. It is for every mother and father out there that have experienced my pain. It is for every child and their siblings that have suffered at the hands of a predator. It is for those here today. My nightmare has finally ended, thank God . But my battle against abduction has just begun, and I plan to win just as I've done here today."

Normal Jaycee Dugard held 18 years too afraid to try escape

Post by Wrapitup on Fri Jun 03, 2011 6:00 am

By LISA LEFF, Associated Press – Thu Jun 2, 8:09 pm ET

PLACERVILLE, Calif. – A woman who was kidnapped, raped and held captive for 18 years was so afraid of her abductors that she never tried to escape, according to court documents released Thursday.
Jaycee Dugard said in testimony to a grand jury that she was zapped with a stun gun while being taken from a South Lake Tahoe street at age 11 and kept under a blanket in a car as she was driven to the home of Phillip and Nancy Garrido.

Dugard said she heard a man laughing as he said, "I can't believe we got away with it."

At his home, Phillip Garrido threatened to use the stun gun on her again and said he had vicious dogs that would attack her if she left the property, she testified.

Dugard was later locked inside a backyard studio without being allowed to leave for an entire year. During later years, she felt helpless because she didn't know where she would go if she escaped.

The document was released after the Garridos were sentenced earlier in the day.

Dugard did not attend the sentencing, saying she refused to "waste another second" in the presence of the married couple she said stole her life.

Phillip Garrido, 60. a serial sex offender, was ordered to spend the rest of his life in prison and his wife, Nancy, 55, was given a decades-long sentence.

The feelings the now 31-year-old victim had never been able to express while she was held prisoner did make it into court.

"I chose not to be here today because I refuse to waste another second of my life in your presence," Dugard said in a statement read aloud by her mother, the first public comments about her experience since police found her 22 months ago. "As I think of all of those years I am angry because you stole my life and that of my family.
"Everything you have ever done to me has been wrong and someday I hope you can see that," she wrote, directing her words to Phillip Garrido. "I hated every second of everyday of 18 years because of you and the sexual perversion you forced on me."

Her mother had her own words for the couple: "The only satisfaction I know is that you will never lay eyes on my daughter again."

Dugard was abducted by the couple as her stepfather watched her walk toward a school bus in June 1991. She was kept in the backyard compound and gave birth to two daughters, the first when she was 14, fathered by Phillip Garrido.

The couple, dressed in orange jumpsuits, made no eye contact with anyone and kept their heads down as the letter was read.

Phillip Garrido's lawyer read a statement on his behalf in court, saying that he agreed with Dugard and did not expect any leniency.
"He has accepted responsibility for his actions and he has done this without any expectation of leniency and has done this because he wanted to spare everyone, especially Miss Dugard and her children, a trial," lawyer Susan Gellman said.

Gellman urged the judge to impose a lighter sentence, citing what she described as Garrido's "significant mental health issues."

Judge Douglas Phimister said the Garridos had "gone shopping" for a young girl to abduct the day they snatched Dugard.

"Basically what you did was, you took a human being and turned them into a chattel, a piece of furniture, to be used by you at your whim," Phimister said. "You reinvented slavery, that's what you did."
The judge also accused Phillip Garrido of feigning mental illness in the days before he was arrested by telling people that he was able to speak to God through a black box. He said Garrido did this because he was finding it increasingly difficult to keep Dugard and her daughters in the "cocoon" he created.

"This is the potential problem you ran into when the family unit you believed existed started to fall apart," Phimister said.

The judge also marveled that Garrido was able to get paroled from federal prison for a 1976 rape and kidnapping conviction after only 11 years, saying the defendant had been able to work the penal system to his advantage.

Phimister said Garrido continued fooling psychologists, psychiatrists and parole officers in the years he held Dugard and had even persuaded probation officers who prepared his presentencing report that he posed only a low-to-moderate risk as a future sexual predator.

"I think Mr. Garrido qualifies as a poster child for a sexual predator," the judge quipped, saying he was disregarding the probation report.
As the judge spoke, Garrido remained motionless and stared straight ahead without speaking.

Phimister imposed the maximum possible sentence of 431 years to life on Garrido. The judge said he recognized that Garrido had psychological problems but said he thought the sentence he worked out was appropriate.

Garrido had pleaded guilty to kidnapping and 13 sexual assault charges, including rape and committing lewd acts captured on video.
His plea was part of a deal with prosecutors that saw Nancy Garrido sentenced to 36 years to life after pleading guilty to kidnapping and rape. The deal was designed, in part, to spare Dugard and her children from having to testify at a trial.

Nancy Garrido's defense lawyer, Stephen Tapson, read a statement for her. "Being sorry is not enough. Words cannot express my remorse for what I did. I stole her childhood," the statement said. "When I walk by a mirror, I hate what I see."

After Nancy Garrido was sentenced, the judge rejected her lawyer's request that she be allowed to see her husband sentenced and ordered her removed from the courtroom. She said "I love you" to Phillip Garrido as sheriff's deputies whisked her away.

Prosecutors have said that Dugard did not leave the backyard for the first four years after her abduction.

The defendants were arrested in August 2009 after Phillip Garrido inexplicably brought his ragtag clan to a meeting with his parole officer, who had no idea the convicted rapist had been living with a young woman and two girls he described as his nieces.

The state last year paid Dugard a $20 million settlement under which officials acknowledged repeated mistakes were made by parole agents responsible for monitoring Garrido. California has since increased monitoring of sex offenders.

Dugard, who has written a memoir set to be published next month, has strived to preserve her privacy since she was found.
Her mother, Terry Probyn, told the Garridos in her court comments that Dugard's daughters, ages 16 and 13, "know what you did to their mother. They realize your backyard was a prison and understand your filthy, despicable secret. They are aware that they have been deceived and I am here to tell you that there is no love lost."

In her own statement, Dugard said she was doing well now.
And she told the Garridos: "You do not matter anymore."

Jaycee has children from Garrido. One would have to wonder how the children are coping and if they miss their father. It is the only life they have known. I pray they all are getting the counseling they desperately need.
