Phillip and Nancy Garrido admit abducting Jaycee as an 11-year-old in 1991, sparing Jaycee — and the daughters she gave birth to as a sex slave — from having to testify at a trial!
Jaycee Dugard will not have to face the monsters who held her captive for 18 years, now that sex offender Phillip Garrido and his wife Nancy have pleaded guilty in this horrific case — and there’s no turning back for them as they face decades and decades behind bars!
Phillip, 60, had confessed to snatching Jaycee from a school-bus stop near her home in South Lake Tahoe, Calif., and holding her captive until she was 29. He now has officially admitted to kidnapping and to 13 counts of sexual assault. Nancy, 55, believed to have dragged Jaycee into the car Phillip was driving, pleaded guilty to kidnapping and one count of sexual assault. Philip will get 413 years in prison and Nancy 36 years to life. They cannot rescind their pleas.
The Garridos are accused of holding Jaycee at their Antioch, Calif., home for 18 years, secreting her in tents and locked sheds in the backyard. She was rescued in August 2009.
The heartbreaking story of Jaycee’s awful abduction, brutal captivity and years of horrific sex abuse in a Bay Area suburb shocked the entire country. And the revelation that Phillip fathered two daughters with Jaycee while she was held as a sex slave made it all the more wrenching!
Now, at least, Jaycee, 30, and her daughters, Angel, 16 and Starlit, 13, won’t have to face the Garridos in court after suffering so much abuse at their hands.
“The enormity of the defendants’ actions has caused tremendous pain and suffering to Jaycee, her mother, Terry Probyn, and their family,” District Attorney Vern Pierson said, according to CNN. “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.”
