A judge has set bail at $30 million for a Northern California man accused of kidnapping Jaycee Dugard and holding her captive for 18 years.
Phillip Garrido has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, rape and false imprisonment charges and has been held without bail in an El Dorado County jail.
Garrido and his wife, Nancy, are accused of kidnapping 11-year-old Dugard from her home in 1991, then raping her and holding her captive in a backyard jumble of tents and sheds for nearly two decades. Authorities say Phillip Garrido fathered two daughters with Dugard.
El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Douglas Phimister set the high amount Monday, citing the serious nature of the charges, injuries to the victim and the fact that Garrido was on parole at the time of the alleged crime.
Police say Garrido snatched Dugard as she walked to a school bus stop near her South Lake Tahoe home in 1991.
He allegedly raped her repeatedly and fathered her two children during the 18 years he held her in a hidden backyard compound of tents and sheds behind his home in Antioch, Calif.
Phillip and his wife Nancy Garrido are behind bars and have pleaded not guilty to kidnap, rape and imprisonment charges.
The Dugard family's location has been a closely guarded secret since Jaycee, now 29, reappeared two weeks ago.
