Jaycee Lee Dugard – an open and shut case?

News bulletins today seems to be focussing on Philip and Nancy Garrido, the couple accused of abducting Jaycee Lee Dugard as a sex slave.

I understand the principle of “innocent until proven guilty”, but the evidence here does seem to be overwhelming, not to mention easy to prove, since Kaycee has two daughters which she alleges were fathered by Phillip Garrido.

Is it right, when the weight of evidence is so great, that victims must be forced by their tormentors to relive every detail of their nightmare in a court of law?
