On June 5, 2002, 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped and held captive for nine months by Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee. In 2008, a 20-year-old Elizabeth told Oprah why her kidnappers should not get a lighter sentence, explaining that they were fully aware of their actions and were still a danger to society.

"I just fully believe that they are 100 percent responsible," Elizabeth said. "If they were let out, they would commit it again. They would find me or some other young girl, and there's no way they should ever be let out."
