SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) now have custody of Phillip and Nancy Garrido, who were sentenced on June 2, 2011 in El Dorado County for the kidnapping and rape of Jaycee Lee Dugard and holding her captive for 18 years.

On June 15, Nancy Garrido was received at Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF) in Chowchilla to begin serving a 36-years-to-life sentence. She is currently single-celled in the prison’s Reception Center, where she will be processed and her long-term housing needs will be determined.
On June 16, Phillip Garrido was received at California State Prison-Corcoran (COR) in Kings County to begin serving a 431-years-to-life sentence for numerous kidnapping and sexual assault charges. Garrido is currently in a segregated cell while he is being processed, but he is expected to be housed in the Protective Housing Unit at COR. The unit houses inmates whose safety would be endangered by general population placement.
