Media Renew Bid For Documents In Dugard Kidnapping

 

PLACERVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A group of media organizations wants a judge to unseal transcripts from the grand jury that indicted the Northern California couple who have pleaded guilty to kidnapping and raping Jaycee Dugard.

Karl Olson, a lawyer for news media that include The Associated Press, informed El Dorado County Judge Douglas Phimister this week that he plans to request the documents right after Phillip and Nancy Garrido are sentenced on June 2.

Olson says there is no legal justification for withholding the transcripts once criminal proceedings have concluded.

Dugard was the main witness to appear before the grand jury. Her memoir about the 18 years she spent held by the Garridos is scheduled to be published this summer.

District Attorney Vern Pierson already has asked the judge to not rule right away on the media’s request.

    Why don’t they leave the poor woman alone and let her make some money and tell her story her way.

    Why would anyone want to read about what that animal did to that poor little girl? They must be sick. They could black out her answers to the question. Nobody needs to know what all she went through. Having a baby is hard enough, but without NO medical help he needs to be locked up twentyfour seven.

    There is absolutely NOTHING in those trancripts, or anything else connected to the Whole mess, that the public needs to know. It is over and done, let the Garrido’s rot in jail, and let an innocent family rebuild and move on with their new life!! I wish Jaycee the best!!
