GRAPHIC:Transcripts of Jaycee Dugard's testimony releasedPLACERVILLE, CA - The woman who endured 18 years of captivity in Phillip Garrido's backyard said she chose not to come to court for his sentencing "because I refuse to waste another second of my life in your presence."PHOTOS: Garrido property searchPHOTOS: Inside the Garrido homeJayceeDugard prepared a brief written statement for her mother, Teri Probyn, to read in court Thursday prior to Garrido being sentenced to 431 years in prison. Garrido's wife, Nancy, recieved a 36-year sentence.Included in Phillip Garrido's sentence was an enhancement because the couple used a Taser to subdue the then 11-year-old Jaycee into their court in South Lake Tahoe on June 10, 1991. The information about the Taser had been previously unreported.Both Garridos were charged with kidnapping and forcible rape. Phillip Garrido was additionally charged with lewd acts upon a child. He fathered two girls with Jaycee."I have always been a thing for your amusement. I hated every second of the 18 years of the sexual abuse I endured," Dugard said in the statement read by her mother.In a remark aimed at Nancy Garrido, Dugard wrote "To facilitate his behavior was evil."Neither Phillip or Nancy Garrido spoke at the hearing, although Phillip Garrido's attorney,Susan Gellman, told the court he agreed with all the things Dugard had said about him.Gellman later said she felt Phillip Garrido's sentence was excessive. She added that Garrido never wanted a trial out of respect for Jaycee Dugard."He entered this plea for her (Jaycee Dugard) so she wouldn't have to go through a trial," Gellman said.Nancy Garrido was sentenced first and her request to remain in court while to hear her husband's sentence was denied by Judge Douglas Phimister.Phimister also denied a request for the couple to meet before they are sent to prison, meaning they will likely never see one another again.Nancy Garrido's attorney, Stephen Tapson, said his client was relieved that the case didn't go to trial."She's scared about going to prison, but glad it's over," Tapson said./>
