    The board that considers compensation for California crime victims is being advised to reject a claim by the mother of Jaycee Dugard, who authorities say was held captive for nearly two decades by a paroled rapist.

    Lynn Margherita, spokeswoman for the Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board, said Thursday the board's staff is recommending the claim by Terry Probyn be handled by the courts.

    Probyn's claim was not included in the state's $20 million settlement with Dugard and the two daughters she bore to her alleged kidnapper. They claimed parole agents supervising Phillip Garrido should have discovered them.

    Probyn says she suffered psychological and emotional injury from her daughter's kidnapping.

    Her lawyer, Dale Kinsella, could not be reached for response to the case.

    The board will meet Sept. 16.
