Nancy Garrido's attorney wins temporary stay

November 28, 2009 11:51:23 AM PST
An attorney for kidnapping suspect Nancy Garrido says he has won a stay delaying a lower court's order ousting him from the case.

Placerville defense attorney Gilbert Maines said on his Web site Friday that he had won a stay from the 3rd District Court of Appeal after seeking a delay in the case.

Maines disputes the alleged conflict of interest that led El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Douglas Phimister to take him off the case earlier this month, saying in a filing that he never considered trying to sell Garrido's story.

Garrido, 54, and her husband, Phillip, 58, are charged with kidnapping, raping and holding Jaycee Dugard captive for 18 years.
