SALT LAKE CITY (Indiana's NewsCenter) – Justice has been served in the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping case.

In a trial lasting a little more than a month, a jury found 57-year-old Brian David Mitchell guilty of kidnapping and transporting then-14-year-old Smart across state lines for improper purposes.

Mitchell snatched Smart from her family's home in June of 2002. Smart was found some 9-months later.

The now 22-year-old Smart testified in early November that Mitchell came into her bedroom, put a knife to her neck, threatened her, then forced her to hike to a mountain campsite.
