    California to keep closer watch on sex offenders
    After criticism over high-profile lapses, state parole officials issue new rules that increase monitoring of sex offenders.

    March 20, 2010
    <snipped>
    California parole officials issued new rules this week that increase monitoring of thousands of sex offenders already required to wear global positioning system tracking devices, a move that comes after sharp criticism of high-profile lapses by the department.

    Parole agents must now track the whereabouts of the state's nearly 5,000 low-level sex offenders through ankle monitors at least four days a month. Previously, no policy mandated how often low-level offenders had to be tracked.

    An additional 2,000 high-risk sex offenders, who already are supposed to be monitored daily, must be visited by a parole officer at their homes twice a month, up from one monthly visit.

    The changes, issued in a Thursday policy memo, were spurred by a review of the parole agency in the wake of the Jaycee Lee Dugard case. The review found that parole agents for Phillip Garrido, who has been charged with Dugard's kidnapping, missed numerous clues over the course of a decade that could have led them to Dugard far sooner.

    The new parole policies also require agents to investigate and document each time a device is unable to acquire a signal or is detected in a prohibited zone. The more stringent reporting requirements are designed to alert authorities to misbehavior that might signal a crime is in the works, officials said.

    Parole agents also must notify local law enforcement when an offender is released from parole.

    Garrido cleared in 2 old cases
    March 20, 2010
    <snipped>
    The man charged with kidnapping Jaycee Lee Dugard and holding her captive for 18 years has been ruled out as a suspect in two unsolved murder cases involving children in Reno, police said.

    Meanwhile, California parole officials announced Friday they have ordered increased monitoring of all sex offenders, largely because of mistakes made in the Dugard case.

    The cold cases eyed by Reno detectives included the 1989 murders of two children who vanished near their school bus stop.

    Investigators searched records on microfiche, contacted retired investigators and sought other physical evidence such as DNA, Whan said. "We were just looking for facts and everything came to a dead end. There was nothing," Whan told the Associated Press.

    One of the Reno cases involved siblings Jennifer and Charles Chia, who were kidnapped on a 100-yard walk from a bus stop to their home in 1989. The remains of Jennifer, 6, and Charles, 7, were found nine months later about 60 miles northwest of Reno.

    In the other case, 7-year-old Monica DaSilva was taken from her bedroom as she slept in 1990. Her remains were found three weeks later.

    Investigators found it interesting that no similar child abductions had occurred in Reno since then. But they have no suspects in either cold case, Whan said.

    Dugard won't allow children to meet with attorneys
    April 6, 2010
    <snipped>
    Jaycee Lee Dugard's attorney says Dugard will not allow the children she had with accused kidnapper Phillip Garrido to meet with attorneys a court has appointed to represent them, and is asking that no information about them or their whereabouts be released.

    The development comes as an El Dorado County Superior Court judge is preparing for hearings next week over whether attorneys for Phillip and Nancy Garrido can have any contact with Dugard, who was forced to have children with Garrido after her 1991 kidnapping when she was 11.

    Attorney Shawn Chapman Holley said in court documents filed today that Dugard is asserting her rights under the California Victims' Bill of Rights, passed as Proposition 9, or Marsy's Law, in 2008.

    Judge Douglas Phimister appointed two attorneys on Feb. 26 to represent the interests of the children and had asked that they be allowed to meet with the girls, but Holley said in the papers filed in Placerville today that she would not allow the meeting.

    Hearings in the case - one closed to the public and a later one open - are set for April 15 in Placerville.

    Jaycee Dugard hires lawyer who represented stars
    Tuesday, April 6, 2010
    <snipped>
    Kidnapping victim Jaycee Dugard has hired a prominent Southern California lawyer to represent her and the two daughters she had with the man charged in her abduction and rape, according to new court papers.Shawn Chapman Holley, 47, a Santa Monica attorney who has represented celebrities including actress Lindsey Lohan, rapper Snoop Dogg and boxer Mike Tyson, told an El Dorado County judge about her professional relationship with the trio on Monday.

    Holley also informed Judge Douglas Phimister that her clients object to the judge's decision in February to appoint separate lawyers for the 29-year-old Dugard's daughters, ages 12 and 15. The girls were scheduled to meet their court-appointed lawyers on Tuesday, but Holley said she advised the girls not to go since she has been retained. "I have advised my clients of their right to have independent counsel and each of them has waived this right and wishes for me to represent them," wrote Holley, who also served on O.J. Simpson's defense team when he was acquitted on charges of killing his wife.

    Holley is seeking a protective order to that effect from the judge. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for April 15.

    The law firm where Holley is a partner &#8212; Kinsella, Weitman, Iser, Kump and Aldisert &#8212; also is representing Dugard and her family in their potential lawsuits against the state of California. Another partner at her firm filed claims in January indicating Dugard, her children and her mother were seeking damages for lapses parole officials allegedly made in supervising Phillip Garrido, a convicted rapist. He had been out of prison for two years when Dugard was snatched outside her South Lake Tahoe home at age 11.

    Dugards' Daughters Information To Stay Private
    Apr 6, 2010 2:10 pm US/Pacific
    <snipped>
    Jaycee Lee Dugard's lawyer says Jaycee's daughters' information will not be released.

    On Monday, Jaycee's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, filed documents with the El Dorado County Courts that assert "Marsy Rights", also known as the Victims' Bill of Rights, on behalf of the two girls.

    Until now, the girls had been represented by separate court-appointed attorneys, but Holley asserted that the two want Holley to be their attorney, according to documents.

    Holley also requested the court issue a protective order keeping all information, documentation and other materials about the girls private.

    Celeb Lawyer Represents Dugard, Daughters
    Phillip Garrido's Alleged Victim Exercises Marsy's Law Rights

    POSTED: 1:31 pm PDT April 6, 2010
    UPDATED: 4:06 pm PDT April 6, 2010
    <snipped>
    Chapman Holley's profile on the firm's Web site says she has represented a laundry list of Hollywood celebrities, including Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton. She was also a member of O.J. Simpson's defense team.

    An El Dorado County judge had previously appointed lawyers to represent Dugard's minor children. The new lawyer, Chapman Holley, said in court papers Dugard's daughters do not wish to be represented by court-appointed attorneys, and she has advised them not to meet with those lawyers now or any other time.

    The court records also show Dugard and her daughters are exercising their rights under Marsy's Law and seek a protective order from the court "to prohibit disclosure of any and all information, documentation and other materials which is confidential and otherwise pertains to them."

    Jaycee Dugard's attorney seeks protective order
    Last updated 22 hrs ago
    <snipped>
    New attorneys representing Jaycee Dugard and her two daughters have filed court documents seeking a protective order for their clients based on Marsy's Law.

    Marsy's Law or Proposition 9, was passed by California voters in November 2008 and includes provisions to prevent disclosure of victim information to defendants and their counsel.

    Prosecutors for the El Dorado County district attorney had also previously objected to a motion by suspect Phillip Garrido to have contact with the daughters he fathered with Dugard.

    In the documents filed April 5, Dugard's private counsel Shawn Chapman Holley also objected to the disclosure of information about her client and her daughters to the Garridos or anyone representing them.

    Holley also objected to a court decision in February to appoint separate lawyers for Dugard's daughters. The judge gave the girls their own lawyers because Phillip Garrido's attorney has sought access to interviews they gave authorities.


    Garrido's court-appointed attorney has previously filed an objection to the prosecution's request for a protective order for Dugard.

    Jaycee Dugard Hires Celebrity Lawyer
    Updated 6:00 PM PDT, Tue, Apr 6, 2010
    <snipped>
    Holley, who is with the Santa Monica-based law firm Kinsella, Weitzman, Iser, Kump and Aldisert, was a member of the O.J. Simpson defense team and has represented numerous celebrities, including Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton, according to her Web site.

    She filed a motion Monday stating that Dugard and her daughters, who were fathered by Garrido, intend to assert their rights under Marsy's Law and object to any disclosure of confidential information concerning them to Phillip and Nancy Garrido's attorneys.

    Under Marsy's Law, also known as the Victim's Bill of Rights Act of 2008, victims have the right, among other things, to prevent the disclosure of confidential information to the defense or anyone working on their behalf.

    In February, Dugard's daughters were assigned court-appointed attorneys to represent them, but Holley has stated that she has been retained to represent them instead and has advised them not to speak to their court-appointed attorneys.

    Jaycee Dugard seeks to block details on children
    Wednesday, April 7, 2010
    <snipped>
    Kidnapping victim Jaycee Dugard and the two children authorities says she had with her alleged abductor do not want any information about them to be released, her attorney said in court documents released Tuesday.

    The children also do not want to be represented by court-appointed attorneys but instead have retained their mother's lawyer, celebrity attorney Shawn Chapman Holley of Santa Monica, the court filings say.

    Holley also said she objected to the release of any confidential information about Dugard, 29, or her children, who were allegedly fathered by Phillip Garrido, who is accused of kidnapping Dugard. Garrido - who along with his wife, Nancy Garrido, faces multiple charges in connection with Dugard's disappearance - is seeking access to videotaped interviews with the children.

    The Garridos have pleaded not guilty and will return to court April 15, when the judge will rule as to whether they can contact Dugard and her children as they prepare for trial.

    Dugard wants no contact with Garrido camp
    Published: Wednesday, Apr. 7, 2010 - 12:00 am
    Last Modified: Wednesday, Apr. 7, 2010 - 9:16 am
    <snipped>
    Jaycee Lee Dugard's attorney says the former kidnap victim does not want her address or any information about her two daughters released to defense attorneys for Phillip and Nancy Garrido, the couple accused of kidnapping her.

    The declaration comes in documents filed in El Dorado Superior Court by Santa Monica celebrity attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, who said the Dugard family was asserting its rights under the state's victims rights law.

    Holley said Dugard and her daughters want her to represent them and that she had advised them not to meet with the court-appointed attorneys.

    The next hearing in the matter is set for April 15, and Holley said that although she could not make that hearing because of a scheduling conflict, she can appear before the court at later dates.

    Holley's appearance marks the latest twist in a case that has gained worldwide attention and at least one other celebrity attorney: Gloria Allred, who says she represents the man who fathered Dugard 30 years ago and split with her mother before she was born.

    Dugard hires O.J.'s lawyer
    Mother seeks to keep information about her and her children from Garrido

    4/14/10
    <snipped>
    Kidnap victim Jaycee Lee Dugard has hired a prominent attorney and is fighting to keep information about her and her two daughters from her alleged abductors.

    According to documents filed in El Dorado Superior Court April 5 by Santa Monica Attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, Dugard &#8220;objects to the disclosure of any and all confidential information&#8221; concerning her and her two daughters reportedly fathered by her captor Phillip Garrido.

    Dugard&#8217;s newly retained attorney was a highly visible member of the O.J. Simpson defense team and worked closely with Johnnie Cochran on high-profile civil and criminal cases. Holley most recently represented Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton.

    Dugard, missing since 1991, had spent the last 18 years in a ramshackle tent compound in the backyard of the Garridos&#8217; Antioch home. She has yet to make a public appearance since reuniting with her family.

    Nancy and Phillip Garrido have pleaded not guilty to 29 felony counts of kidnapping, rape, sexual assault and false imprisonment.

    The Garridos are scheduled to return to El Dorado County Superior Court April 15 for further proceedings.

    Judge Grants Phillip And Nancy Garrido More Calls
    Apr 15, 2010 3:04 pm US/Pacific
    <snipped>
    An El Dorado County Superior Court judge is granting Phillip and Nancy Garrido's request for more phone calls between the jailed couple.

    The judge first allowed Jaycee Lee Dugard's accused kidnappers two five minute phone calls back in February. Today, he granted them two more calls: one in May and one in June.

    Also Thursday, the judge granted a protective order blocking the defense attorneys' access to Jaycee's personal contact information. However, they are permitted to contact Jaycee's attorney.

    The judge is continuing to deny the Garridos' request for in-person visits. Earlier, the Garrido's lawyers asked the judge to compel jail officials to allow the two to meet face-to-face so they can talk about the case, their finances, and their hopes for Dugard and the two daughters Jaycee had with Phillip Garrido.

    Lawyers for El Dorado County filed court papers opposing the couple's request, saying California law does not give jail inmates a constitutional right to visit each other. He says arranging such visits for the Garridos would overburden jail staff.

    The judge also ordered the El Dorado County district attorney to hand over a video tape to a defense attorney containing an interview between a police officer and Jaycee. However, the judge is not granting access to other tapes containing interview footage with Jaycee's girls.

    The date the preliminary hearing is October 7.

    Prosecutor says evidence against Garrido is overwhelming
    April 15, 2010
    <snipped>
    El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson said today he has overwhelming evidence to convict accused kidnapper and rapist Phillip Garrido, and that he believes there is evidence to show Nancy Garrido might have been under her husband's control. "We believe it does exist," Pierson said during a 50-minute hearing in Placerville.

    Pierson said the mere existence of the two daughters that kidnap victim Jaycee Lee Dugard had while in Garrido's captivity for 18 years "is incriminating." "This is a case that we can prove without any difficulty as to Mr. Garrido," Pierson said.

    Phillip Garrido's attorney, Susan Gellman, brushed off Pierson's assertions, saying outside of court "he was voicing his own assessments."

    Nancy Garrido's attorney, Stephen Tapson, said he hopes to use the idea that she was under her husband's control as part of his defense. "True love is a defense, and I'm trying to fit it into the penal code," Tapson said outside of court.

    Much of today's court appearance centered on the district attorney's efforts to win an order that would prevent the defense from contacting Dugard or her children.

    El Dorado Superior Court Judge Douglas J. Phimister agreed that the defense attorneys can contact the attorney for Dugard and her two children but that the Garridos can have no personal or written contact with them at all.

    Phimister set a preliminary hearing for Oct. 7.

    He also agreed in an earlier closed session this morning to allow the Garridos to speak with each other by phone in the jail twice in the next two months. Each of the calls is limited to five minutes, and the Garridos already have spoken during two previously authorized five-minute calls.

    Prosecutor says evidence in Dugard case overwhelming
    Last Update: 4/15 4:21 pm
    <snipped>
    A district attorney prosecuting the couple charged with kidnapping and holding Jaycee Dugard captive for nearly two decades says he has overwhelming evidence against suspect Phillip Garrido.

    El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson also said Thursday that he had information that could mitigate the guilt of Garrido's wife, Nancy Garrido.

    Pierson made the assessment of the case while arguing against a demand by defense lawyers for copies of videotaped interviews that child abuse investigators conducted last summer with Dugard and her two daughters, who were fathered by Phillip Garrido.

    Pierson says he did not want the tapes copied because no images of the daughters, ages 12 and 15, have yet surfaced publicly.

    Judge Douglas Phimister ruled the defense could obtain copies of Dugard's interview but could only review the girls' interviews at the prosecutor's office.

    Garridos Get One Yes and One No From Judge
    Updated 6:15 PM PDT, Thu, Apr 15, 2010
    <snipped>
    A judge has denied a request for kidnapping suspects Phillip and Nancy Garrido to visit one another in jail. However, the judge did grant the couple two more phone calls on a date yet to be set. The Garridos are scheduled to face a preliminary hearing on Oct. 7.

    In court on Thursday, El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson said he has evidence that Nancy Garrido was under the control of Phillip Garrido. Pierson said he is willing to share details with Nancy's Garrido's attorney.

    The judge relieved the court-appointed counsel for Dugard's two girls because the children are being represented by Shawn Chapman Holley, the same Southern California attorney who is representing Dugard. The judge also signed a protective order that prohibits the Garridos and their attorneys from contacting Dugard. The Garridos' attorneys may contact Holley.

    The Garridos' defense earlier asked that the district attorney turn over interview tapes of Dugard and her girls. The judge ordered that the defense be provided a copy only of the interview with Dugard. The judge said the defense may listen to interviews with Dugard's children, but may not have a copy.

    Review: Garrido Not Fully Supervised Until 2007
    Internal Document Reveals Mistakes In Phillip Garrido's Supervision

    POSTED: 3:56 pm PDT April 16, 2010
    UPDATED: 5:20 pm PDT April 16, 2010
    <snipped>
    Phillip Garrido was supervised by California's parole agents far less often than he should have been during the early 2000s, according to an internal review document by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

    It wasn't until 2007 that CDCR staff met the minimum supervision requirements -- eight years after he became the responsibility of California's parole system.

    The documents, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by KCRA 3 and other news organizations, revealed parole staff didn't visit Garrido's home until May 8, 2000 -- nearly a year after his California parole supervision started.

    According to the report, from June 8, 1999, to December 2000, parole staff visited Garrido three times at home, conducted office visits eight times, talked with him twice by phone and drug tested him six times. They also received five monthly reports by mail.

    Parole agents should have visited Garrido at home 14 times and twice at the office, the report says, and he should have been drug tested 16 times over the 18-month period.

    "Garrido also should have been ordered to attend parole outpatient treatment, but was not ordered to do so until November 2007," the internal review states.

    Prosecutor calls evidence against Jaycee Lee Dugard's alleged kidnapper overwhelming
    Friday, April 16, 2010
    <snipped>
    The evidence against Jaycee Lee Dugard's alleged kidnapper and rapist is overwhelming, the prosecutor said Thursday, but the case against Phillip Garrido's wife may show she acted under his control.

    The pronouncement by El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson came during another court hearing for the Garridos, who are inching toward trial on charges of kidnapping 11-year-old Jaycee in 1991. "This is a case that we can prove without any difficulty as to Mr. Garrido," Pierson said, adding that the mere existence of Dugard's two daughters &#8212; allegedly the product of Garrido's raping of Dugard while she was held &#8212; "is incriminating as to Mr. Garrido."

    But the case against Nancy Garrido may be more complex, he signaled, telling the judge that there is evidence that Nancy Garrido might have been under her husband's control. "We believe it does exist," Pierson said during a 50-minute hearing in Placerville.

    Phillip Garrido's defense attorney later brushed aside Pierson's assessment of the case. "Well, that's his take on the evidence," Susan Gellman said outside of court. And Nancy Garrido's attorney, Stephen Tapson, made it clear that he will try to show she was under Garrido's influence.

    New details emerge of Garrido parole supervision
    Apr. 17, 2010 - 12:00 am
    <snipped>
    For nearly a year after Phillip Garrido was put on supervised parole in California in 1999, parole agents never bothered to visit him at home.

    They did not perform the standard parolee interview, assess him or check his living arrangements, as is routine. And although GPS monitoring showed he was spending large amounts of time in his Antioch-area backyard, there's no evidence parole agents ever investigated why.

    The new details of Garrido's supervision are contained in 36 pages of records released Friday in response to a suit filed and paid for by The Bee. The records, the second set turned over by state corrections officials because of the lawsuit, illustrate how cavalierly Garrido, a convicted rapist and kidnapper, was watched.

    Though parole agents spent little time with Garrido in those early years, they concluded they knew enough about him to declare him "a suitable candidate for discharge from state parole supervision," the records state.

    The full picture of that supervision is not available because a year's worth of documents from his file are missing. But the records provided show he failed drug tests and disappeared at times.

    Newly Released Documents Point to Garrido Mistakes
    Updated 11:00 AM PDT, Sun, Apr 18, 2010
    <snipped>
    Phillip Garrido was supervised by California's parole agents far less often than he should have been during the early 2000s, according to an internal review document by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

    It wasn't until 2007 that CDCR staff met the minimum supervision requirements -- eight years after he became the responsibility of California's parole system. The convicted rapist was also incorrectly classified as a low-risk sex offender, which, according to the report, meant he received fewer home visits and was subjected to less drug testing and outpatient treatment than he would have seen as a high-risk offender.

    According to the report, from June 8, 1999, to December 2000, parole staff visited Garrido three times at home, conducted office visits eight times, talked with him twice by phone and drug tested him six times. They also received five monthly reports by mail.Parole agents should have visited Garrido at home 14 times and twice at the office, the report says, and he should have been drug tested 16 times over the 18-month period.

    "Garrido also should have been ordered to attend parole outpatient treatment, but was not ordered to do so until November 2007," the internal review states.In early October, the document was presented to California's inspector general, who in turn issued a withering criticism of the corrections department. Parole agents should have visited Garrido at home 14 times and twice at the office, the report says, and he should have been drug tested 16 times over the 18-month period. "Garrido also should have been ordered to attend parole outpatient treatment, but was not ordered to do so until November 2007," the internal review states.
