Jaycee Dugard's kidnapper was given a commendation by the U.S. government for turning his life around, at the same time he was holding Jaycee hostage and raping her.

In an outrageous and almost unthinkable turn of events, Phillip Garrido received glowing praise from the U.S. Parole Commission in the form of a letter. "You are commended for having responded positively to supervision and for the personal accomplishments you have made," the award reads. It also calls him a "productive citizen." The letter officially ended his parole for a previous rape.

It's a sickening development that has only now become public, as Garrido and his wife have been charged with multiple felonies for abducting Jaycee and holding her as a prisoner for 18 years. Garrido is most likely the father of Jaycee's two children.

Garrido received the government award in 1999 while on parole for a 1976 rape. He kidnapped Jaycee in 1991.  He had received a 50-year sentence for rape but served roughly one-fifth before being freed.
