Jaycee Dugard broke her silence about her 18 years in captivity, lashing out at her abductors in a statement read in court Thursday by her mother.
“I chose not to be here today because I refuse to waste another second of my life in your presence,” she said in the remarks read at the sentencing for Phillip and Nancy Garrido. “Everything you ever did was wrong and I hope one day you will see that.”
“I hated every day for 18 years,” the statement continues. “You stole my life and that of my family.”
As she read, Dugard’s mother Terry Probyn became increasingly upset. Her voice got louder until she finally shouted, “I hate you for the torment you put my family through!”
