SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California man sentenced to life in prison for kidnapping, raping and holding Jaycee Dugard captive for 18 years arrived at a state prison Thursday, where he will have some notorious neighbors.Phillip Garrido, 60, will be housed in Corcoran State Prison's Protective Housing Unit, for inmates who aren't safe in the general population, according to the California Department of Corrections. The unit is the longtime home of 1960s cult killer Charles Manson and once housed convicted Robert F. Kennedy assassin Sirhan Sirhan.
Dugard told the court -- in a statement read by her mother -- that she "hated every second of every day for 18 years" that the Garridos imprisoned her in a lair of sheds and tents outside Antioch.
"I chose not to be here today," said Dugard, 31, who is about to release a tell-all book, "because I refuse to waste another second of my life in your presence ... For all the crimes you have both committed, I hope you have as many sleepless nights as I did."
