With her abductors pleading guilty and sentenced to life in prison, the details are finally coming out about the fear and pain that the then-11-year-old Jaycee Dugard endured during her kidnapping.

Dugard, now 31, described her ordeal in testimony before a grand jury last September, and on Thursday the court released a heavily redacted transcript. But even in the shortened form, the transcript’s account – the first to be made public – is chilling.
