WATCH: Disturbing Kidnapper Video Prompts Lawmakers To Action; WARNING: Disturbing Video

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM/SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A day after releasing disturbing footage videotaped by one of Jaycee Dugard's captors and a report highlighting law enforcement failures in the case, a California prosecutor plans to join a state lawmaker Wednesday to develop ideas for improving supervision of parolees.

El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson on Tuesday discounted claims by federal officials that Phillip Garrido's parole agent had not missed opportunities to find Dugard and the two daughters she bore the convicted rapist.

"The system as a whole failed, and we should all be angry about it," he said during a news conference Tuesday in the state Capitol.

In his report, Pierson said the agent visited Garrido's home in the San Francisco Bay area town of Antioch only once between May 1991, the month before Dugard was snatched off her South lake Tahoe street, and May 1995, eight months after she had given birth to her first child by Garrido.

During the 1991 visit, the agent was shown Garrido's backyard recording studio, which became the first place Dugard was confined and raped after her kidnapping just weeks later.

"Had the federal parole agents been doing their job and searching the residence (and the recording studio they were aware of), then they would have found Jaycee Lee Dugard imprisoned in the back yard," Pierson asserted. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM HUFFINGTONPOST.COM
