South Lake Tahoe girl Jaycee Lee Dugard has been staying at an undisclosed location with her daughters and family since her release from 18 years of captivity.  Now, her stepfather, Carl Probyn, is speaking out on what has been happening to her now that she is away from Phillip and Nancy Garrido, who are charged with kidnapping and raping Dugard. 

Probyn says that Dugard’s exposure to the outside world is still extremely limited, as officials do not want her memory to be tainted by the media.  Therefore, she is not allowed to watch TV, read a newspaper, or listen to the radio.  In addition, law enforcement authorities are debriefing her so she has the proper information.  Probyn also says that Dugard and her daughters, Angel and Starlit, are “going a little stir crazy,” but they will stay in hiding for as long as necessary so they can deal with their ordeal in the healthiest way possible.
