Jaycee Dugard Kidnapper in Same Prison Unit as Charles Manson

El Dorado County Sheriff via Getty Images(SACRAMENTO) -- Phillip Garrido, the man convicted of kidnapping, raping and holding Jaycee Dugard captive for 18 years, arrived at California’s Corcoran State Prison Thursday to begin serving a sentence of 431 years to life.

The 60-year-old Garrido, who was given the name “Creepy Phil” by his neighbors in the town of Antioch, will be housed in a protective unit that is also home to cult murderer Charles Manson.

“Creepy Phil” and “Crazy Charlie” are in a Protective Housing Unit for inmates whose safety, according to the California Department of Corrections, “would be endangered by general population placement.”

Phillip Garrido’s wife, Nancy Garrido, is now at a California women’s prison, serving a sentence of 36 years to life.

Jaycee Dugard was 11 years old in 1991 when the Garridos snatched her off the street and forced her to live in a backyard compound made of sheds and tents.  She was sexually assaulted by Garrido for years and gave birth to two daughters while in captivity.

Dugard was freed in August 2009.  She has a memoir due out next month.
