Dugard Kidnappers to Plead Guilty

Just weeks after they pleaded not guilty, a couple will switch their pleas and confess to the kidnapping of Jaycee Dugard. Nancy and Phillip Garrido allegedly held Dugard captive for 18 years, and Phillp Garrido is also accused of fathering two children by Dugard. An attorney said that Nancy and Phillip Garrido will enter the plea Thursday, sending them both to prison. Phillip Garrido will serve a life sentence, while Nancy Garrido will serve 25 years to life plus another 11 years. In early April, the couple was expected to plead guilty, but surprised the court by announcing not guilty pleas. Both had previously confessed.
