Brian David Mitchell was convicted of kidnapping Elizabeth Smart.
Seven years after he abducted Smart now 23, from her Utah bedroom and subjected her to a terrifying nine-month ordeal, a jury rendered a guilty verdict on charges of kidnapping and transporting a child across state lines for sexual purposes.
He faces a possible life sentence. That might not be long enough ...
AHHH! Scared yet? Luckily for all of us, Brian David Mitchell is off to prison.
Jury deliberations began after a month of testimony, including several days on the witness stand for Smart, who calmly recounted how Mitchell raped her daily.
Mitchell was singing "The Great Redeemer Died," as he often does, and didn't stop singing when the verdict was read aloud, showing no visible emotion either.
Elizabeth Smart, 23, took her seat next to her parents, Ed and Lois, and her sister, Mary Katherine. After the verdict was read, a look of triumph was shared.
Mitchell's accomplice, Wanda Barzee, who pleaded guilty to kidnapping last year, is serving a 15-year sentence in a federal facility already. Good riddance.
