Jaycee Dugard to Appear in First Television Interview With Diane Sawyer


Jaycee Dugard


The 31-year-old will share story about her 18 years in captivity with 'World News Tonight' in an episode set to air next month.

Jaycee Dugard will break silence about her years in captivity on ABC News' "World News Tonight". The network has scored the first interview with the 31-year-old victim of kidnapping and sexual abuse. Diane Sawyer will conduct the exclusive interview, which is set to air in July before the release of Dugard's book "A Stolen Life".

Dugard stole media's attention with her tragic story in which she was kidnapped from her South Lake Tahoe home in 1991 at the age of 11 by Phillip Garrido. She was sexually abused and held captive for 18 years, before returned to her family in 2009. Dugard gave birth to two children fathered by Garrido during her years in captivity.

Last week, Garrido was sentenced to 431 years to life in prison while his wife Nancy was sentenced to 36 years to life in prison. Dugard did not attend the sentencing hearing but her mother, Terry Probyn, read a statement by Dugard.

"I chose not to be here today because I refuse to waste another second of my life in your presence.... Everything you ever did to me was wrong and I hope one day you will see that.... I hated every second of every day for 18 years. You stole my life and that of my family," she wrote to Garrido. For Nancy, Dugard wrote, "There is no God in the universe that would condone your actions."
