Elizabeth Smart gets hitched in Hawaii

Posted under Uncategorized

Elizabeth Smart, 24, married her fiance at a Mormon temple in Hawaii this past Saturday. She wanted to keep things small and simple, and avoid the public eye as much as possible.

She was thrust into the spotlight when she was just 14, after she was kidnapped from her Salt Lake City, Utah home. She was missing for nine months before she was spotted and returned to her family. During that nine months she was held captive by a man and his wife and sexually assaulted numerous times.

Her two captors were arrested, and the man responsible for the kidnapping was sentenced to life in prison. The woman will be serving the next 15 years in a Texas prison for her part in the crime.
