$30M bail set for Dugard kidnap suspect

PLACERVILLE – A judge has set bail for a Northern California man accused of kidnapping a girl and holding her captive for 18 years at $30 million.

Phillip Garrido has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, rape and false imprisonment charges and had been held without bail in an El Dorado County jail.

Garrido and his wife, Nancy, are accused of kidnapping 11-year-old Jaycee Dugard from her South Lake Tahoe home in 1991, then raping her and holding her captive in a backyard jumble of tents and sheds for nearly two decades. Authorities say Phillip Garrido fathered two daughters with Dugard.



El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Douglas Phimister set the high amount Monday, citing the serious nature of the charges, injuries to the victim and the fact that Garrido was on parole at the time of the alleged crime.
