Elizabeth Smart Case & Brian David Mitchell's trial are underway. Elizabeth Smart was just 14 when she was abducted from her Utah home by knifepoint. She was taken from the bed that she shared with her young sister. Elizabeth Smart was then held in captivity by Brian David Mitchell, where she claimed she was held as his wife and was raped on a daily basis, many days multiple times. This lasted for 9 months, and then she was discovered.
The trial for Brian David Mitchell has been a long time coming. Elizabeth Smart, who is working as a missionary in France came back to testify, and shared her account of what she called was a "realistic nightmare."
The trial doesn't center on whether or not Brian David Mitchell did the things he is accused of doing. The trial centers on whether or not Brian David Mitchell was insane. Understanding his mind is going to be difficult for the jury.
Do you think that Brian David Mitchell should be determined to be "not guilty" or "Guilty, but insane"?
