Look at that - there's still some justice in this world.
It's the conviction thats been eight years in the making.
A jury in Utah found Brian David Mitchell guilty this morning of kidnapping and continually raping Elizabeth Smart when she was 14 years old. After an almost five hour deliberation, the jury cast down the guilty verdict, which was met with by smiles from Elizabeth and her family in the courtroom.
Brian faces a lifetime in prison, which is lenient sentencing if you ask us, but it will do.
A justifiable end to a tragic circumstance. Perhaps now, Elizabeth can put the past behind her and start anew. We wish her the best!
