Garrido The inspector general for California's prison system is set to issue a report today on the way the parole division handled Phillip Garrido, the alleged kidnapper of Jaycee Dugard, while he was harboring her.

David R. Shaw will release his findings and recommendations at a news conference scheduled for 11:30 a.m. in Sacramento, following a two-month investigation.

Garrido was under state control for 10 years as a convicted rapist and under federal parole supervision for eight years.

Authorities say he hid Dugard in the backyard of his Antioch home after kidnapping her outside her South Lake Tahoe home in 1991, when she was 11, and then fathered two daughters by her.
