On the second day of the federal trial of Brian David Mitchell, Elizabeth Smart gave detailed testimony about her kidnapping.

Smart testified that Mitchell, 57 raped her on a daily basis. She also testified about an escape attempt, a close call she had with a detective, and her move to San Diego.

Smart was kidnapped from her bedroom back in 2002 when she was just 14. Nine months later she was found by a homeless preacher and his wife.

At a mental competency hearing for Mitchell, Smart testified that she was “forced” to marry him.

Mitchell is facing charges of unlawful transportation and kidnapping of a minor across state lines and if he is convicted he could spend the rest of his life in prison.
