Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

A DE­FENCE lawyer says the Cal­i­for­nia cou­ple charged with kid­nap­ping Jaycee Du­gard and hold­ing her cap­tive for 18 years has made full con­fes­sions to po­lice. Stephen Tap­son, who rep­re­sents Nancy Gar­rido, said they ad­mit­ted snatch­ing Du­gard, then 11, from a South Lake Ta­hoe street in 1991. For years she was im­pris­oned in a com­pound in the back­yard of the Gar­ri­dos’ home. Du­gard gave birth to two girls while cap­tive. The case con­tin­ues March 17.
