Nineteen years before Phillip Garrido allegedly kidnapped and raped 11-year-old Jaycee Dugard, he faced charges for drugging and raping a 14-year-old girl in an Antioch motel room, Antioch police Lt. Orman said today.In April 1972, the victim went to the Antioch Public Library with a friend and met up with Garrido and a male friend of his, Orman said.The victim and her friend agreed to get into a car with Garrido and his friend and the men allegedly gave the girls barbiturates, Orman said.The victim ended up with Garrido at a motel on East 18th Street, now the Riverview Motel, where he allegedly gave her more barbiturates and then repeatedly raped and sexually assaulted her, Orman said.The girl’s parents found her later at the motel and police arrested Garrido on suspicion of rape.Garrido was charged in connection with the assault, but the victim refused to testify and the charges were eventually dropped, Orman said.Four years later, in 1976, Garrido kidnapped and raped a woman near Lake Tahoe. He was convicted in 1977 and sentenced to 50 years in prison, according to Nevada Department of Corrections spokeswoman Suzanne Pardee.Garrido served nine years in federal and state prisons, but was paroled to California in 1988, according to Pardee.Three years later, on June 10, 1991, he and his wife Nancy Garrido allegedly kidnapped Jaycee Dugard as she waited for the school bus in front of her South Lake Tahoe home.Dugard lived in a series of makeshift tents and sheds in the Garridos backyard on Walnut Avenue in unincorporated Contra Costa County near Antioch for 18 years before being discovered last week. During that time, Dugard bore two children allegedly fathered by Garrido.Phillip and Nancy Garrido have been charged with 29 felonies in connection to the case, including kidnapping, forcible rape, and false imprisonment. They have both pleaded not guilty in El Dorado County Superior Court in Placerville.
