According to Jaycee, the government should have kept a closer eye on her kidnapper, Phillip Garrido.

And the plot thickens in Jaycee Dugard’s abduction story.

Jaycee Dugard, 31, is reportedly suing the US government for an undisclosed amount.  The lawsuit claims the federal government is at fault for her serving 18 years in captivity.

Her kidnapper, Phillip Garrido, was a convicted rapist who was on parole prior to Dugard’s abduction. Garrido’s parole officers were supposed to be monitoring his California home from 1991 to 1999. Throughout this time federal officials never came across Jayvee Dugard, who gave birth to two of her kidnapper’s children. Jaycee was finally released from captivity in 2009.

Any of the awarded money will be donated to her non-profit organization– which she founded, The JAYC Foundation, Inc.

Last year, Dugard sued the state of California for $20 million.

We sure hope Jaycee gets the justice she deserves!
