Phillip Garrido Transferred to Same Prison as Manson

Phillip Garrido will serve his sentence in the same state prison as where Charles Manson is currently staying.

Phillip and Nancy Garrido reached plea agreements with prosecutors and earlier this month were sentenced for the kidnapping and assault of Jaycee Lee Dugard.

Phillip and Nancy kidnapping an 11-year-old Dugard in 1991 from her South Lake Tahoe street as she walked to school. According to what Dugard told a Grand Jury, the couple used a stun gun to demobilize the girl, and then kept her captive in their Antioch home.

Phillip fathered two daughters with Dugard during her 18-year captivity. Despite the fact that Garrido was on probation for previous sex crimes, and at one point during Dugard’s captivity was sent to jail again, the girl’s presence was not known until August 2009.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation announced Thursday Garrido would serve his 431 years to life in prison sentenced at Corcoran, in Kings County. Garrido was transferred there Thursday morning.

In addition to Manson, other Corcoran notable inmates include Phil Spector and John Albert Gardner, who was sentenced last year for the murders of two San Diego area girls.

Nancy was transferred to Chowchilla Wednesday. She was sentenced to 36 years to life in prison. Chowchilla is the largest female-only correctional facility in the U.S, and houses California’s death row for women.
