    Jaycee Dugard Applied for Driver's License

    The woman who was held for 18 years in a backyard compound allegedly by a convicted rapist and his wife is on the road to a somewhat normal life.

    Jaycee Lee Dugard was issued a California identification card in November, our friends at KCRA say, and has also requested a driver's license. The ID card was mailed in November but in order to get the driver's license, Dugard has to go to a Department of Motor Vehicles office.

    News of Dugard's license comes just days after another important legal document was put into California records.

    Last week, the two daughters Dugard gave birth to during her captivity were finally issued birth certificates. The documents, ordered by a judge in December, list the girls' birth dates as August 1994 and November 1997. Dugard's alleged abductor, Phillip Garrido, is listed as the childrens' father and his Antioch property is listed as their birthplace.

    Dugard and her daughters are reintegrating into society while staying out of the public eye. They remain in a secret place, while Garrido and his wife, Nancy, are being held behind bars in connection to the Jaycee Dugard kidnapping case.

    Both Nancy and Phillip Garrido pleaded not guilty to 29 felony counts of kidnapping, forcible rape and false imprisonment in connection with the 1991 case. His bail is set at $30 million in September; hers at $20 million. The couple is due again in court on March 25.
