SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - California kidnapping victim Jaycee Dugard has agreed to give her first interview to veteran broadcast journalist Diane Sawyer.
ABC News reported Wednesday that the World News Tonight anchor plans to tape a conversation with Dugard that will air next month, just before publication of Dugard’s memoir, “A Stolen Life.” An exact date wasn’t provided, but the book is to be released July 12.
Dugard was kidnapped from South Lake Tahoe in 1991, then sexually abused and held captive for 18 years by Phillip and Nancy Garrido. She gave birth to two daughters by Phillip Garrido. The couple pleaded guilty and received lengthy prison sentences last week: 431 years to life for Phillip Garrido and 36 years to life for his wife.
