Thank goodness! Eight years after being taken from her Utah bedroom in the middle of the night, kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart watches as the man who took her is found guilty in the court of law
It’s been a long road of recovery for 23-year-old Elizabeth Smart, who was snatched from her bedroom in 2002 when she was just 14-years-old. Thankfully she was able to find some closure as a jury found Brian David Mitchell, 53, guilty on charges of kidnapping and unlawful transportation of a minor across state lines for the purposes of illegal sex.
Elizabeth Smart stormed out of the court room yesterday after an expert witness said that she had allegedly picked out a baby name just in case she got pregnant during her nine months of captivity.
Elizabeth Smart stormed out of a court hearing for her abductor, Brian David Mitchell, yesterday (Dec. 1) in Salt Lake City, UT, after a witness for the defense testified that she had chosen a baby name, thinking she would get pregnant sometime during her captivity after she was kidnapped from her home at the age of 14 in 2002. Elizabeth became visibly upset after Dr. Paul Whitehead, the clinical director of the forensic unit at Utah State Hospital, brought up information he had gathered from Mitchell’s wife Wanda Barzee‘s journal and various police reports — some of it detailing Mitchell’s desire for Elizabeth to become pregnant. “Mitchell was talking to Miss Smart about having babies to the point that Smart actually picked out a name if that happened,” Whitehead testified. It was then that Elizabeth reportedly shot him a cold glare and stormed out of the court room, followed by her mother Lois Smart. How awful!
