New Garrido parole records released
A judge ordered the release of Phillip Garrido's parole records late Friday night. They show kidnap victim Jaycee Dugard had sympathy for Garrido, even after he held her captive for 18 years.
In the report, filed by the parole agent who first interviewed her, she fiercely defends Phillip Garrido saying he was "a great person, good with her kids and that he had a gift."
She also says she knew he was a registered sex offender and on parole.
She also told police she knew he had kidnapped and raped another woman 30 years ago, but that he was a changed man.
The reports also show that less than a month before he was arrested, Garrido initialed papers promising not to have contact with girls between 14 and 18 years old.
He was living at the time with Dugard and the two girls he fathered with her.
