Phillip and Nancy Garrido to appear in court
Phillip and Nancy Garrido are scheduled to appear in El Dorado County Superior Court in Placerville this afternoon to set a date for a preliminary hearing, according to the El Dorado County District Attorney's Office.
The Garridos have both pleaded not guilty to 29 felony charges, including kidnapping, forcible rape and false imprisonment in connection with the kidnapping of Jaycee Dugard.
The couple allegedly snatched Dugard, who was 11 at the time, on the morning of June 10, 1991, as she waited for a school bus near her South Lake Tahoe home, according to the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office.
Dugard, now 29, is believed to have been held captive for 18 years in a series of makeshift sheds and tents in the backyard of the Garridos' home on Walnut Avenue in unincorporated Contra Costa County just outside of Antioch.
While living on the property, Dugard gave birth to two daughters allegedly fathered by Phillip Garrido.
Prosecutor Bill Clark said today that his office is ready to set a date for a preliminary hearing, but that he believed the defense would ask the judge to further delay the hearing.
The district attorney's office does not plan to offer either defendant a plea deal in the case, Clark said.
Today's hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m.
