Jaycee Dugard Jaycee Dugard, the California woman who was abducted as a child and held in captivity for 18 years, will break her silence about the ordeal in an exclusive TV interview with Diane Sawyer.

Multiple news organizations had been trying to secure an interview with Dugard and, according to 'The New York Times,' ABC signed a deal earlier this week.

A spokesman for the network said that "Dugard will be asked about the extraordinary and heartbreaking story of her captivity [and] her reunion with her family," adding that the show will air shortly before her memoir, 'A Stolen Life,' is published on July 12.

Last week, the couple who kidnapped Dugard in 1991 and imprisoned her in a backyard compound for nearly two decades were sentenced to lengthy jail sentences. Phillip Garrido received a term of 431 years, and his wife, Nancy, got 36 years to life.

In a statement read out in court Dugard told the couple, "There is no God in the universe that would condone your actions."

In May she signed a deal with Simon & Schuster to publish her account of the kidnapping and the subsequent years she spent as a captive. A spokeswoman for the publishers said that Dugard wrote the book without the assistance of a ghostwriter.
