Jaycee Dugard: Top 11 Missed Chances to Stop Her Kidnapper, Phillip Garrido


10. Parole Violations: The CDCR failed to act on information that Garrido had violated his parole terms.

11. Warning of Children on Property Dismissed: The Contra Costa Sheriff's office had the opportunity to stop Garrido in November 2006 after it responded to a 911 call, claiming there were children living on Garridos' property. A representative from the sheriff's office visited the house after the call, met Garrido on his front lawn, determined there was no threat and left.

At an August 2009 press conference, Sheriff Warren Rupf took responsibility for the error but said that his office was not aware of Garrido's sex offender status.

Last year, the California state legislature approved a $20 million settlement to compensate Dugard for failing to properly supervise Garrido.
