[Updated at 1:15 p.m.] Nancy Garrido was sentenced to 36 years to life in prison for her role in the kidnapping and sexual assault of Jaycee Dugard, Garrido's attorney said Thursday.
She and her husband, Phillip Garrido, held Dugard captive from the time the girl was 11 until she was 29.
Phillip Garrido also is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday in an El Dorado County, California, court.
The married couple pleaded guilty in late April in El Dorado Superior Court to the kidnapping and sexual assault of Dugard, whom they held captive from age 11 until she was 29.
They abducted Dugard when she was 11, and held her in a hidden compound on their home's grounds in Antioch, California.
Dugard was snatched from the street in front of her home in South Lake Tahoe, California, in 1991. Authorities found her in 2009.
Phillip Garrido, a registered sex offender on parole at the time of his arrest, is accused of fathering two daughters with Dugard during her captivity.
California law doesn't provide for a death penalty for the offenses committed by the Garridos, District Attorney Vern Pierson said in April.
Phillip Garrido, 60, pleaded guilty to one count of kidnapping and 13 counts of sexual assault, Pierson said. He faces a maximum possible sentence of 431 years to life in prison and he has waived his right to appeal, Pierson said.
Nancy Garrido, 55, pleaded guilty to one count of kidnapping, one count of rape by force, and to California's "one strike" rape law, Pierson said.
Her sentence is the maximum possible based upon the sentencing laws in 1991, Pierson said.
Nancy Garrido also has waived her right to appeal, prosecutors said. Her plea was offered contingent upon Phillip Garrido pleading guilty and waiving his right to appeal, prosecutors said.FULL STORY
