Kidnapping victim Jaycee Dugard and her family have filed claims against the state of California for damages they say resulted from "various lapses" by the corrections department.

Jon Myers, a spokesman for California's Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board, says Dugard, her two daughters and her mother, Terry Probyn, each have filed claims with the board.

The claims say failures by corrections officials led to psychological, physical and emotional damages in excess of $25,000.

Phillip Garrido and his wife Nancy have been charged with kidnapping Dugard in 1991 and holding her captive in their backyard for 18 years. Garrido also allegedly fathered two children with the girl.

Parole agents with the department of corrections began supervising Phillip Garrido in 1999, but failed to discover Dugard.
