Jaycee Dugard expresses relief after captors plead guilty

The mother of kidnapping victim Jaycee Dugard read a statement in court Thursday to Dugard's captors, Phillip and Nancy Garrido, who were sentenced to prison.

Dugard did not attend the hearing, but her mother, Terry Probyn, read a statement by Dugard directed at Phillip Garrido:

"I chose not to be here today because I refuse to waste another second of my life in your presence.... Everything you ever did to me was wrong and I hope one day you will see that.... I hated every second of every day for 18 years. You stole my life and that of my family."

In a portion of the statement directed at Nancy Garrido, Dugard wrote:

"There is no God in the universe that would condone your actions."
