The San Francisco Chronicle reported that state parole “agents fell down on the job again and again during the 10 years they supervised sex offender Phillip Craig Garrido.”
From 1999 until he was finally arrested in August, Garrido, 58, was supposed to be subject to regular visits and other checks by the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Parole authorities have always insisted they had no evidence Garrido ever violated the conditions placed on him by Nevada, where he was convicted of kidnapping and raping a woman in 1976.
Yesterday, the state Inspector General David Shaw issued a special report about the case. The report said “Garrido committed numerous parole violations and that the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation failed to properly supervise Garrido and missed numerous opportunities to discover his victims.”
