Can You Believe The Woman Who Helped Keep Jaycee Dugard Prisoner For 18 Years Is Crying Because Jaycee Hasn't Visited Her In Jail?

Nancy and Philip Garrido were indicted by a grand jury this week for the kidnapping and rape of Jaycee Dugard. In a truly disturbing twist, Nancy’s attorney admits that the woman — who helped her husband keep Jaycee a prisoner for 18 years — is devastated because Jaycee and her daughters haven’t visited her in prison.

HollyMoms, brace yourself for an extremely disturbing update on Phillip and Nancy Garrido. You’ll remember them as the couple that allegedly held Jaycee Dugard prisoner in their Antioch, Calif., backyard for 18 years before authorities discovered and rescued her in August 2009. Now a grand jury has indicted the  couple on kidnapping and rape charges. That’s the good news. The disgusting part is that Nancy’s been crying her eyes out over the fact that neither Jaycee nor her two daughters (who were fathered by Nancy’s husband, Philip, a registered sex offender) have come to visit her in jail, according to her attorney Stephen Tapson. “They’re running out my Kleenex budget. She wants to see the kids and Jaycee,” reveals Tapson.

Of course 30-year-old Jaycee, who is now in the process of trying to regain some sense of normalcy for her and her girls after such a horrific ordeal, has absolutely no interest in seeing her former abuser or his wife ever again. And who can blame her? For her own peace of mind and safety, prosecutors are refusing to tell the Garridos where Jaycee and her girls are currently residing. Jaycee (who the Garridos kidnapped when she was just 11) is making positive progress thanks to therapy sessions and is interested in starting a foundation for other victimized children. “She has a talent for it and she wants to pursue it,” says family spokesperson Nancy Seltzer.

An arraignment is in the works, according to Tapson, who was surprised that his client was indicted. “I had assumed they weren’t going to. I’m surprised they waited so long,” he says adding that he is hoping that if Nancy pleads guilty she will get a softer sentence than life without parole. Personally, we think that for her part in this whole thing, she deserves to be locked up and they should throw away the key! What do you think?

I believe she should be put in a tent, fed bugs and raped repeatedly. She obviously doesn’t have a problem with that. Show no mercy, none.

I am awed by the grace of Jaycee Dugard and her mother. These are truly holy women. I can think of no other words adequate to describe them.
I also have some questions — does either the state Jaycee was taken from or the state she was held captive in have a death penalty? I always thought that kidnapping, especially with sexual assault was a capital crime and warranted the death penalty. If it doesn’t it should! Also, is the money the Dugard’s received because of the FAILURE of the parole board, the “justice” system and everyone else who could have saved her from those monsters going to be tax free? It should be! The Dugard’s should never have to pay taxes again. We pay taxes with certain expectations and those expectations certainly weren’t met in their case. And — did the parole officers who failed to simply walk out into the backyard lose their jobs? I hope so! They should go to prison!

This is such a sad, sad story. I wish Jaycee and her girls, nothing but the best as they work to reclaim their stolen live. No amount of money will ever be enough for how the system failed her.
