SALT LAKE CITY — Elizabeth Smart returned to the witness stand Tuesday to give more testimony against the man accused of abducting her, holding her hostage and abusing her for nine months, Brian David Mitchell.

Assistant U.S. attorney Felice Viti resumed his questioning of Smart at 8:44 Tuesday morning.

Judge Dale Kimball: Mr. Mitchell you have a constitutional right to be present, which will be waived if you continue to sing … We'll ask for him to removed… You may resume the stand, Miss Smart, you're under oath.

Felice Viti: Good morning, Miss Smart. I'll ask you to look at government exhibit 31D. Do you recognize it?

Elizabeth Smart: Yes. It's part of the cable system that was wrapped around the trunk of the tree.

Viti: How do you know that?

Elizabeth: Because you can see where part of the cable is dirty from being around the tree. You can also see the circular little egg shaped connection on one side where he would pull on it.

Viti: Miss Smart, where did the defendant keep the bolt cutters that we saw yesterday?

Elizabeth: In a bucket placed far out of my reach in the underground house he was digging out.

Viti: So the cable system did not allow you to reach where the bolt cutters were placed?

Elizabeth: Right.

Viti: When the defendant, the first day in the camp, when he placed the ankle tether around your ankle, were the other components of the cable system already in place?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did there come a time during your time being held in the upper camp where the defendant gave you a name?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: What name did he give you?

Elizabeth: Shurjesha.

Viti: Did he tell you why he gave you that name?

Elizabeth: Yes. It was out of one of the books of the Old Testament, the book of Isaiah. There was a son of Isaiah named Shurjesha.

Viti: Tell us what the name meant.

Elizabeth: It means "a remnant will return."

Viti: When you were still in the upper camp, did you choose another name?

Elizabeth: Yes. I asked if I absolutely had to be called that name and he said he would allow me to choose a name. However it could not be Elizabeth or Anne. It had to be out of the Bible … I chose Esther.

Viti: Did you ever speak to the defendant about your parents? What types of things did you discuss?

Elizabeth: How much they loved me, how much they meant to me.

Viti: How would he react when you told him this?

Elizabeth: At first he was a little more patient with me but as time went on he became more, he didn't want me to talk about them so much. He didn't want me to focus on them so much, so he told me to refer to them as Ed and Lois and to cut back on talking about them.

Viti: Did he ever tell you to refer to him and Wanda Barzee as mom and dad?

Elizabeth: Yes … only when we were in public.

Viti: Did the defendant ever use vulgar language while in Utah?

Elizabeth: Yes … He used it fairly frequently. He especially used it while drinking or before he would rape me.

Viti: Would he use vulgar language to refer to male and female genitalia?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Would he use that type of language before raping you? Were there other times when he would use vulgar language?

Elizabeth: Yes. He would use vulgar language … He said that we had to sink below all things so we could rise above all things and he brought pornography into the camp and he would talk about the women using vulgar terms.

Viti: Did he scream out loud, "I'm going to f--- your eyes out?"

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: What would happen after he said that?

Elizabeth: He would rape me.

Viti: On these occasions did he ever refer to religion in any way?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: On these occasions would he refer to religion in any way?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: Miss Smart, did there come a time when the defendant removed the cable from your ankles?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Describe the events leading up to him removing the cable.

Elizabeth: The night before, he gave me a key to wear around my neck and then next morning he cut the cable off my ankle.

Viti: What did he tell you when he gave you key? Did he tell you anything about the key?

Elizabeth: Not that I can recall.

Viti: Is this the key on the green lanyard?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: That evening, when you had the key, were the sleeping arrangements same?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: What would you have had to have done in order to use key to unlock the lock?

Elizabeth: I would have had to stand up right next to him, unzip the tent right next to his head, go outside, unlock the lock that was connecting me onto the stationary cable, coil my cable up and run down the mountainside.

Viti: You would have had to climb over defendant to reach tent zipper?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: What kind of sleeper was the defendant?

Elizabeth: He was light a light sleeper.

Viti: What happened the next day?

Elizabeth: The next day, he took the bolt cutters out, and cut the cable off my ankle.

Viti: Did he say anything to you before he removed the cable?

Elizabeth: He said even though you have the cable removed off your ankle now, it doesn't change the fact you will be killed if you try to escape or your family will be killed.

Viti: When he remove the cable around you ankle, did he dismantle other components of the cable system?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: After the defendant removed the cable from your ankle, did the sleeping arrangements change?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Will you describe that for the jury?

Elizabeth: Yes. Instead of our heads at the zipper of the tent, we did a quarter turn so our bodies were parallel to tent door. I was farthest away, next to the tent wall at back of tent. He was next to me and his wife was right in front of the tent door.

Viti: Miss Smart, while you were tethered, were you ever left alone in camp?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: How was it the defendant knows about your cousin?

Elizabeth: I had talked about when I was younger, how I used to go over to her house and I used to play a lot with her, and we'd grown up being very close.

Viti: Did you tell the defendant how old you cousin was?

Viti: Before you told him her age, he asked you if she baby-sat you?

Elizabeth: Yeah.

Viti: During these conversations with the defendant, describe the conversation you had with the defendant about your cousin.

Elizabeth: I would mostly talk about times we shared together. She was one of my closet friends at that time, and he would act interested and engaging, and I didn't think anything else of it at the time.

Viti: When you were having these conversations about your cousin, did you have any knowledge of what he told you he intended to do July 23 and 24.

Elizabeth: No

Viti: On July 23, what occurred?

Viti: Where did your cousin live at that time?

Elizabeth: She lives very close to the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Viti: What did he tell you happened at the Wright's home?

Elizabeth: He said that he had snuck around the back and that there was a window that was slightly open so he pulled it open a little bit more and there was a screen and so he cut the screen and then on the other side of the screen there were blinds that had been down. He said he tried to push the blinds so that he could get into the room and on the window sill. On the other side of the blinds there was some small figurines or books, some small objects, so when he started to push the blinds they fell off. He said that had scared him so he stopped for a minute when that happened. He pushed the blinds again and this time a lot of objects fell off and he said he heard running down the hallway and the lights just came on and he heard the name Jessica.

Elizabeth: As you walk out of our kitchen door there was a smaller patio area and that chair belongs on that patio.

Viti: Thank you. Miss Smart, I'd like to turn you attention to on or about … Withdrawn… Did he ever give you a reason why he chose the 23rd and 24th and day to kidnap Olivia?

Elizabeth: He talked about the 24th because it was a holiday and he talked about it just since it being a holiday, it would be maybe not as quickly to respond.

Viti: Who would be?

Elizabeth: The public.

Viti: And what holiday is that for those who might not know?

Elizabeth: 24 of July. It's a Utah holiday. Pioneer Day.

Viti: I'd like to turn you attention to July 25, 2002. Did you recall anything unusual on that date that you recall?

Elizabeth: Not in particular.

Viti: The pajamas you were wearing on June 5, 2002, what happened to them.

Elizabeth: They were burned.

Viti: Did you recall when they were burned?

Elizabeth: I'm not the exact date but mid- to late July.

Viti: Can you describe the circumstances of those pajamas being burned?

Elizabeth: He said the time had come that I needed to sever all ties with the world and that meant my family as well. And he said that I needed to destroy my pajamas, and he said that I could choose how I destroyed them. And so I decided to burn them because, well, he suggested the idea of me just cutting them up but I didn't want to cut them up because I didn't have the heart to cut them up. Dropping them was a lot easier than going at them with scissors.

Viti: And did you drop them in a fire?

Elizabeth: Yes, I did.

Viti: Did he take anything else away from you?

Elizabeth: Yes. He took away my tennis shoes.

Viti: Was that different than the pajamas?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What did he do?

Elizabeth: He put them in a garbage can at the ZCMI food court.

Viti: Did you do anything before he took them?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What did you do?

Elizabeth: There was a small circular piece of the sole that came onto the front of the toe. I ripped that piece of the shoe off and I kept it.

Viti: Before or after pajamas were burned?

Elizabeth: After they were burned, I saw the safety pin that closed them higher up, and I took that out of the fire.

Viti: After the fire was out, did you take anything else?

Elizabeth: The safety pin.

Viti: What did you do with the safety pin?

Elizabeth: I pinned it with a piece of the shoe onto a piece of paper.

Viti: Where did you do with the piece of paper?

Elizabeth: It was in a three-ring binder that I had at the time.

Viti: Why did you do this?

Elizabeth: Because I didn't want to let go of my family, of my life.

Viti: What happened to that safety pin and the piece of rubber from the tennis shoe?

Elizabeth: Um, there came a point when we changed camps to a lower area down the mountain that was closer to Salt Lake. The hike wasn't quite as hard and it wasn't uncommon for them to go through this three-ring binder and they found the piece of rubber shoe and safety pin that I had and they said I needed to get rid of it. So I walked a little ways from where the lower camp was and threw it.

Viti: Did there come a time when you were allowed to accompany the defendant and Ms. Barzee to Salt Lake City?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Do you recall the first time?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Tell us what happened.

Elizabeth: We came down, came out of Dry Creek Canyon where there is a trailhead different from the one that I was taken up the night I was kidnapped and we came out and we took the University of Utah shuttle down to the lower part of campus where then we walked down 4th South and we stopped and went into Wild Oats where he stole some items and then he said that we all needed to drink a beer. He said he didn't want us going anywhere or doing anything else before each of us drank a Heineken beer.

Viti: Miss Smart, let me interrupt you there. Let's go back to the time where you were at camp before you went down that day. What did he say to you?

Elizabeth: He told me that I needed to stay by him at all times and that If I tried to run away I would be killed. He said that I wasn't to talk to anybody. I wasn't to, I wasn't to go anywhere without him. That I was to stay next to him at all times. And some blue toenail polish that my younger sister and I had painted our toenails with, and there wasn't a lot but there were some remnants of that, and he said I needed to get rid of it before we went down because there couldn't be any sort of mark or sign that I was Elizabeth Smart.

Viti: What were you wearing, the same linen robes the defendant and his wife had on? Were you wearing anything on your heads

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What were you wearing?

Elizabeth: A head covering his wife had made and it had recently a veil piece added onto it that covered below my eyes covered my face.

Viti: How was the veil attached to the headpiece?

Elizabeth: It was buttoned on.

Viti: What were you wearing on your feet?

Elizabeth: I was wearing sandals.

Viti: And how were the defendant and Wanda Barzee dressed?

Elizabeth: They had the same linen robes on. She had a headpiece and a veil piece covering her head as well and they had hiking boots on.

Viti: Did there come a time heading down the mountain when the defendant and Wanda changed their footwear?

Elizabeth: There came a time when they changed to the same style of sandal that I had on.

Viti: And what did he do with the boots?

Elizabeth: He hid them behind a tree that was farther down, that was close to the main popular trail.

Viti: When he hid them or placed them in the tree were they well hidden? Was it something he had to look for or was it something he looked for, this tree?

Elizabeth: It was something he knew about.

Viti: I'll refer you to back at the Wild Oats. What happened after? Tell use about him talking about beer, Heineken beer.

Elizabeth: He said that he didn't want us to go anywhere else without each of us drinking at least one beer, so he went into I believe Wild Oats and stole a six-pack of Heineken beer and we went in the a bathroom in another building down the street and we drank the beer. He said just to calm ourselves, to keep ourselves composed not to be tense I think or that's what I remember him saying.

Viti: That first time in Salt Lake, do you recall what you did in evening?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What was that?

Elizabeth: We went to a big rave type party … There was a young man who worked at Wild Oats at the time, who he and the defendant had been friends. They talked with each other, knew each other, not well, but I think the young man looked at defendant as a guru, spiritual sort of guide, so this young man told the defendant about a party, said he could come if he wanted.

Viti: What is young man's name?

Elizabeth: Daniel Trotta

Viti: Was he an employee at Wild Oats?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What else did he do for defendant as an employee?

Elizabeth: The defendant would steal from stores, so people didn't think he did. He would take just few items to the cash register, pay for an item, out of few items. When he went to Mr. Trotta, he would sort of run them over scanner without ever getting scanned. He would just give the store's food to defendant.

Viti: You said it was a rave party, what is a rave party?

Elizabeth: A place that had weird lights, black lights, a lot of music, a lot of drinking and drugs, and there was a lot of people I didn't know existed until that point.

Viti: Where was party held?

Elizabeth: It was just on 2nd South at the bottom of the hill, so probably 9th or 10th East. I'm not exactly sure but in that general area.

Viti: When you entered house, what did you see and hear?

Elizabeth: There was lot of people. A lot of them had red plastic Solo cups in hands and they … There was a lot of alcohol there. I saw a big glass jug that had white sort of root looking thing in it. People tried smash it to get juice from the root. I could smell cigarettes and I could smell marijuana.

Viti: When he entered the door, did he say anything to the effect, we need leave, there's alcohol, marijuana, loud music?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Did he say anything about religion or God?

Elizabeth: Not that I can recall.

Viti: What did he do?

Elizabeth: He went and took red plastic cups and started drinking as well, and he went up to this glass jug that had the root being smashed inside. He smashed it down and filled whole red cup filled with this juice stuff being smashed from the root.

Viti: Did anybody tell you what that liquid was?

Elizabeth: Yes. The defendant told me it was absinthe.

Viti: Did he tell you what absinthe is?

Elizabeth: He said it was hallucinogen.

Viti: Did he consecrate the absinthe before drinking it?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Before you went to the party, what instructions did he give you?

Elizabeth: He told me not to talk to anyone, to stay right next to him and his wife. Once again, he threatened me with my life.

Viti: What did you do at party?

Elizabeth: I stayed next to him and his wife passed me a red solo cup full of absinthe. He told he to take sip. I don't know if I swallowed any. It was just so bitter.

Viti: Did the defendant drink anything else?

Elizabeth: Beer

Viti: Was there food at the party?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did the defendant eat?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did you and Ms. Barzee eat?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Why not?

Elizabeth: He told use not to.

Viti: Did he eat a lot of food?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: After he drank from the Solo cup filled with what he claimed to be absinthe what happened?

Elizabeth: I don't exactly remember what started. He got into an argument with a girl there, and they were yelling back at each other. I think he was yelling at her to repent, but I don't exactly remember. Then there was another woman who came up to us and said, "I think it's time for you to go," and then herded us all out, to leave the party and house. On the way out the defendant just said, (to her) you're an angel sent from God, such angel from paradise the whole way out. At very end she turned to him and said, "I'm an angel but you're not welcome here. Don't come back."

Viti: Do you recall what woman was wearing?

Elizabeth: I don't recall. I think she might have had black shirt on. I don't remember though.

Viti: Did the defendant start yelling repent after drinking, after talking about any religious topic?

Elizabeth: Not that I recall.

Viti: Did the defendant ever talk out Mr. Trotta? What kind things did he say about Mr. Trotta?

Elizabeth: He would say that he was searching for truth and that he was a little confused but he was closer to living more correct than many other people. He said he didn't really understand who the defendant was but that his eyes weren't closed as tightly as rest of world's were.

Viti: Did you overhear conversations the defendant would have with Mr. Trotta about religion?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti Did they discuss anything controversial?

Elizabeth: Not that I recall.

Viti: Did he ever discuss polygamy with Mr. Trotta?

Elizabeth: Not that I recall.

Viti: Did he identify himself to Mr. Trotta as a prophet, as a Davidic king, as one mighty and strong?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Did he ever introduce you to Mr. Trotta as Sherjatha?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Besides helping the defendant out at Wild Oats when he shopped for food, what else would Mr. Trotta do?

Elizabeth: He provided marijuana for defendant one time.

Viti: Do you recall the first time you observed the defendant smoke marijuana? Where was that?

Elizabeth: Liberty Park.

Viti. The first time you observed him smoke marijuana, did you smoke?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: During the nine months the defendant held you, did you ever smoke marijuana?

Elizabeth: Yes. Shortly after the first time I saw him smoke, we went way back up into mountains, to the original camp, the upper camp, where he rolled marijuana cigarettes. We sat by the fire. He passed it to us, and honestly, I don't know if I inhaled or smoked … I don't think I did because he got sort of selfish and said, "Oh, you're both as high as kites. You're so high right now." Then he took the marijuana cigarette back and he just said, "You're not inhaling right. You're just holding it in your mouth." So he took it back and smoked it himself.

Viti: Did he consecrate the marijuana before he smoked that night?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Did there ever come a time when you visited the Salt Lake City Library?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What brought you to the library on that occasion?

Elizabeth: He said felt like we needed to find a new city for a new wife. He said he received a revelation about seven different wives from seven different cities. He wanted go to the library to look at maps of different places.

Viti: What happened before you went to the library? Had he decided on a destination or was that to be decided?

Elizabeth: He decided, yes, he decided on a destination.

Viti: What was that destination?

Elizabeth: San Diego.

Viti: Did he give reason why?

Elizabeth: He said it was a big city. He said that's where he felt inspired to go.

Viti: What time of the year was this?

Elizabeth: It was beginning of fall or coming on to fall, maybe.

Viti: What sort of progress had the defendant made on the dugout home he was building?

Elizabeth: Um, he had maybe added one supporting, one support and maybe dug a couple shovelfuls of dirt, so minimal, minimal progress on the dugout.

Viti: Did the defendant discuss whether weather was a factor in the decision to go to California?

Elizabeth: Yeah, he brought it up.

Viti: When you got the library can you tell us what happened?

Elizabeth: We went to a bathroom. Then we came back and sat down at a table, and I think he had taken a little bit longer in the bathroom, and I remember a man approaching us. But at the same time he was approaching us, the defendant was walking back and the man introduced himself as a homicide detective.

Viti: What happened after he introduced himself?

Elizabeth: He wanted me to removed the veil so he could see my face.

Viti: What was Wanda doing, Wanda Barzee, doing at the time?

Elizabeth: Her hand was clinching my leg.

Viti: Did you interpret this to mean anything?

Elizabeth: Yes. I interpreted it to mean don't say anything, don't move, don't do anything.

Viti: When the detective asked that he needed to look or wanted to look under the veil, did he give you a reason why?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What reason was that?

Elizabeth: He was looking, a couple of telephone calls had come in and he was looking for Elizabeth Smart.

Viti: At the time the detective said that, where was the defendant?

Elizabeth: He was standing up in front of us facing the detective. He was in between us and the detective

Viti: What did the defendant say, if anything, when the detective said he wanted to look under your veil?

Elizabeth: He said that wasn't allowed in our religion and only my husband would ever see my face in our religion.

Viti: How were you dressed at the time?

Elizabeth: We had long linen robes. We had the head piece and the veil.

Viti: Was it still the veil that covered half your face?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What did the detective do when the defendant told him…

Elizabeth: He asked if he could be part of our religion for a day so that he could see my face, so that he could go back and say no, it wasn't Elizabeth Smart, it wasn't the girl they were looking for.

Viti: What was the defendant's response?

Elizabeth: He was still very calm and cool. He said, "No, only her husband will do that."

Viti: During this conversation, do your recall the defendant explaining what the consequences would be if someone looked at your face?

Elizabeth: I don't remember.

Viti: How long did the defendant and detective talk to one another?

Elizabeth: It wasn't very long, five, 10 minutes at most.

Viti: Did the detective, as time progressed, become more insistent about looking under you veil?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: During this time did the defendant identify who he was?

Elizabeth: Um, I don't remember.

Viti: Did there come a time when the detective left?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Can you tell the jury how you felt when the detective left?

Elizabeth: I felt like hope was walking out the door. I was mad at myself that I didn't say anything. I was mad at myself for just not taking the chance, that I just felt like I was so close, and I felt terrible. I felt terrible that the detective hadn't pushed harder, that he had just walked away. I felt upset with myself that I hadn't said anything, that I hadn't taken a chance that maybe something would have happened to me. Maybe something would have happened to me, would have happened to my family, but then again, maybe nothing would have happened. I was very upset.

Viti: During the time the detective was speaking to the defendant, were you hoping the detective would lift the veil?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did the defendant take anything with him from the library?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What did he take?

Elizabeth: He just said that the Lord was really protecting us and that that was definitely a sign that it was time for us to leave.

Viti: You mentioned the defendant had revelations about other wives.

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did he discuss your role when other wives would, when you would meet these other wives?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What was that role?

Elizabeth: I was to be one who would demonstrate everything for them.

Viti: Did they describe what everything included?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What was that?

Elizabeth: Sexual intercourse and its variations.

Viti: Turning your attention back to incident at the library with the detective. Did you notice if that had that any effect on defendant?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did he discuss leaving for California a lot after that incident in the library?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did he seem be in a rush leave Utah after that incident?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did the defendant tell you how you would get to California?

Elizabeth: Yes. We would take a Greyhound bus.

Viti: Did he discuss any other mode transportation?

Elizabeth: Yes. He just mainly talked about why we couldn't take any other mode of transportation. Planes are expensive. You need identification, none of which we had, and I didn't have. He talked about hitchhiking was too dangerous. People might recognize me. He just said Greyhound bus would be the quickest and with least interruption.

Viti: Was departure date chosen?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: How was that chosen?

Elizabeth: He chose it once he had enough money.

Viti: How did he get money?

Elizabeth: He begged for it. He asked people for it.

Viti: What preparations were made prior to the trip to California?

Elizabeth: The upper camp was closed up. Things were packed away, put into dugout. The lower camp was closed up. The green bags that we had were packed with what he considered were essentials we would need in California. He got food for the trip. He made sure we had some extra cash for when we got there.

Viti: When you left the upper camp, go straight to Greyhound terminal or any intermediate stops?

Elizabeth: No. We spent last night at the lower camp.

Viti: What happened after you spent last night at the lower camp?

Elizabeth: We left very early in the morning. I remember we stopped by the shoe tree where he had hidden his shoes. They were picked up then we went down to the Greyhound bus station.

Viti: How were you dressed at that time?

Elizabeth: In robes with a headpiece and veil. There was another veil added on that to cover our eyes as well. It went down as far as other veil but it went over, so both veils were on.

Viti: When was the eye veil added?

Elizabeth: After what had happened in the library.

Viti: Whose decision was it to add the eye veil?

Elizabeth: The defendant's.

Viti: Why?

Elizabeth: He said the world wasn't ready for that light in my eyes.

Viti: Did Wanda Barzee have same eye veil?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Whose idea was it for Wanda wear the eye veil?

Elizabeth: The defendant's as well.

Viti: What reason did he give for Wanda wearing the eye veil?

Elizabeth: Same reason.

Viti: Miss Smart, did the defendant give you any instructions prior to the morning you left for the Greyhound terminal?

Elizabeth: He said not to speak to anyone. He said just to stay close to them, always do as he said, always or else I would be killed, or my family would be killed.

Viti: Can you describe what occurred when you arrived at the Greyhound terminal?

Elizabeth: I remember getting there and there was a woman there and, um, I was looking at her and she just yelled back to me, to stop looking at her and to take that rag off my face. And then I remember after that, when we were about to board the bus, one of the terminal workers, one of the Greyhound bus workers, asked if he had any sort of knife or weapons or that sort of thing that was not allowed on the bus, and he (Mitchell) had a kitchen knife in one of his bags and so he gave the kitchen knife to the man.

Viti: When you boarded the bus, did the defendant give you any instructions?

Elizabeth: He told me to sit next to the window.

Viti: Did anyone sit next to you?

Elizabeth: The defendant.

Viti:. Where in the bus were you seated?

Elizabeth: I remember being toward the back, not at the very back but middle back.

Viti: Could you describe your feelings, for the jury, when you were on that bus?

Elizabeth: I felt like I was being sentenced to 20 more years. I felt like the chances of me being found in California had just dropped a lot.

Viti: Did the defendant ever give you a choice of whether you could stay in Utah?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Did you voluntarily leave Utah with Wanda and the defendant?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: I just want to discuss a few things that occurred while you were in Utah with the defendant. When Miss Barzee made your veil the first time, your face veil, before you went down to Salt Lake City, did she make one fore herself?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did she add a face veil to her own headpiece at the same time?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Were you ever forced to wear the robes and face veil in an around the camp?

Elizabeth: The robes, yes. The veil, no.

Viti: During your time in Utah did the defendant ever show you newspaper articles or show you articles about you?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What did he say?

Elizabeth: I remember him showing me, I believe it was City Weekly, but my picture was on the cover and it had piranha on the picture and pieces of the picture bitten out, and he just told me to look at the search effort and just how we were being protected by God … that we were protected, they weren't able to find us.

Viti: During your time in Utah could you give us an example of how often the defendant would drink alcohol?

Elizabeth: Um, every time he went to down to Salt Lake. He would always bring alcohol back and he would stay at the camp until the alcohol was gone and then he would go back down to Salt Lake. And he went down to Salt Lake probably after the first couple times he went, down probably three to five times a week.

Viti: Would he bring back a lot of alcohol when he came back to the camp?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: During this time, did you observe him to be intoxicated during your time in Utah?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did he ever give you a reason for his drinking?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What reason?

Elizabeth: He said that it, that he had to drink so that he could go out and face the world, that it helped him, that it helped him in going out.

Viti: When did you return to Salt Lake … Withdrawn. Let me rephrase that. He told you he drank the alcohol to face the world?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Where did he drink the alcohol?

Elizabeth: He drank it in the camp as well as in Salt Lake.

Viti: How many people were in the camp?

Elizabeth: It was just his wife and myself.

Viti: During the time you spent in Utah can you give us just a description of your diet while you were up in the camp?

Elizabeth: Um, it was quite sporadic. Oftentimes he wouldn't go back down until the food and alcohol had run out, so then we'd go a day or so without eating, but it was simple foods. When we were at the lower camp especially it was simple foods. When we were at the upper camp, we had a fire so foods were cooked occasionally, but there was no refrigerator so most times it was whatever would last.

Viti: Did the defendant tell you where he obtained food?

Elizabeth: Yes. He said went to Wild Oats a lot and Albertsons sometimes.

Viti: How would he justify shoplifting?

Elizabeth: He called it plunder and said it was like in the Bible when children of Israel would go and fight a city, then capture city. They would go and take goods or plunder goods from the city and bring them back for the Lord's purposes, and so that's what he said he was doing.

Viti: Did the defendant ever tell you he got into any trouble for plundering?

Elizabeth: Yes. He told me one time he went to Albertsons and was caught and how they took him into security, took him into a back room to take pictures and how he smiled for the camera and just how the guy as taking picture didn't take them immediately because he was so taken aback that this man smiled for the picture. Then he talked about police officers asking him his name and Social Security number and how he wouldn't tell them for a long time and finally a police officer said, "If you don't tell us your name and Social Security number, then we're gonna have to take you in and go before a judge. But if you give to us, you'll be able to leave right now." After that, he gave them a name and Social Security number, the policeman said he had nothing recorded except restraining order from his mother.

Viti: Did he make any comments about the police officer involved in that incident?

Elizabeth: Just that the police officer didn't understand who he was dealing with and who the defendant really was.

Viti: While in Utah, did you ever observe the defendant, when you were held by him, ever observe him panhandle?

Elizabeth: Yes. He would just hold his hand out and say "Please help," and if people asked questions, he wouldn't answer a lot of times until they gave him money or he would walk away.

Viti: What would his demeanor be like when he panhandled?

Elizabeth: Very fake, but just very, to me it felt fake, but I guess to whomever he saw him he seemed quiet, very genuine, calm, just very sincere in his panhandling.

Viti: Why did he seem fake to you?

Elizabeth: Because when people would walk away, depending on who it was, he would turn and criticize them, and, he wasn't serious, he wasn't. He just knew how to manipulate people, that's what he was good at. He's good at manipulating people. If someone gave him money but sort of held back little bit or only gave little bit, as soon as he walked away, he would say, "God bless you." When they would walk away, he would say, depending on who it was, "They don't know who they're really dealing with. That's a quarter only they're giving the Lord. One day they'll regret what they've done … This world so sick. Everyone is so prideful and so full of themselves." Just very negative things.

Viti: When the defendant was panhandling, did he ever proclaim he was a prophet?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: A Davidic king?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: One mighty and strong?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Did the defendant ever introduce you as his wife while he was panhandling?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Would he shout out repent?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Take us back to the incident at the library. Did that occur while you were held by the defendant?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Miss Smart, the times that he forced you to walk around the campsite naked in Utah, what reason did he give for that?

Elizabeth: He said we were going to play Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. We needed to sink below all things before we could rise above. By going naked, that was showing our true form, showing who we really were.

Viti: Did he and Wanda also go naked?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: How many times did that occur do you recall?

Elizabeth: It wasn't uncommon. I don't know if I could put a number on it, but it happened maybe once a week, once or twice a week.

Viti: And while he was naked, after he told you why you had to go naked, was there a lot of discussion about religion.

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Miss Smart, you had mentioned that the defendant would mention revelations, could you describe some of the revelations you recall he had or blessings he gave while you were in Utah?

Elizabeth: Yes. Uh, he and his wife would get in fights a lot, um, and she would be very, very upset with him because she said that he would lust after me and that he paid me too much sexual attention. And so she would be very upset over this, and so he would always come back to her and he would, he would say, "Hepsebah, I feel like the Lord has something to tell you," and then he would keep saying that to her until she listened to him, which was pretty quick. And then he would put his hands on her head and then he would give her a blessing and he would say, "By the power of the holy Melchizedek Priesthood I hold, I give unto you a blessing," and the he would always say something that would placate her like, "Hepsaebah, you are a mother of Zion and you are a chosen daughter of God and the crown that awaits you in heaven is already so bright and so beautiful it is second only to the Savior's. Your dearest friends were Mary, the mother of Jesus, and when you are sad, the angels in heaven weep over you. And among your friends include Johann Sebastian Bach" and some other names I don't remember at this time. But he would tell her things like that very often and that she needed to be patient with him in his weaknesses and that he just felt his inadequacies so much in his calling and that being called to be the Lord's servant in the last days, she needed to be patient with these things because these things helped him in the time being and there would be time when circumstances would change. And then after that, she would generally be OK, but then after the blessing she'd always say something like, "See Immanuel, the Lord knows me. He understands me. You need to stop being so worried about your inadequacies. The Lord has prepared you to do these things.

Viti: The blessing you described, that was a blessing she would get … over him lusting after you?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Would that calm her down

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: After he would provide the blessing over Wanda, would it decrease your sexual abuse?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: When he was giving these blessings to Wanda, did you get a sense he was taking advantage of her?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Please tell us about the next revelation you were going to describe.

Elizabeth: I remember another blessing when they had fought again. She was upset with him because hew as drinking so much, and so he said, "I feel like the Lord has something to tell you." And so he would give her another blessing. And in this blessing he would say she and I had already experienced what we needed to experience with alcohol, but he still needed it. He needed it as a support to him to go out and face the world and that he could drink and smoke as much as he wanted it or needed it at that time and that we were no longer to drink or smoke anymore.

Viti: So, this blessing came after Wanda complained to him about his drinking?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: As the result of this blessing, was he going to drink more?

Elizabeth: Yes

Vitit: He didn't have to share it with you and Wanda?

Elizabeth: Right

Viti: Do you recall another blessing that involved a schedule?

Elizabeth: yes

Viti: Can you describe that?

Elizabeth: Yes. They got in a fight again, over me again, that he was paying too much attention to me, lusting after me too much and that he wasn't fulfilling her needs. And, um, so he gave her another blessing, and in this blessing he set up a schedule and the schedule said that from the morning until midday he would be with her and from midday until the following morning that I would be with him and he could not rape me during her time and he would not have intercourse with her during the time he was supposed to be with me.

Viti: Did there come a time when he attempted to deviate form this schedule?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Can you tell me what happened?

Elizabeth: One time he decided not to go to Salt Lake, but we still needed water, so he took me to get water back up the mountain where we got water before, from a stream right out of the ground. Then he stopped and he pulled me in close to him and he said that he needed me right then, and he said that he really, really needed me right then. I said I couldn't, the schedule would not permit that. And he said that, well, his wife would never know. Wanda, his wife, would never know, she didn't have to know, and I said I couldn't do that.

Viti: Did you tell him what you would do … was this schedule, did he tell you or did he tell Wanda this schedule was divinely inspired?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What did you tell him you'd do if deviated form the divinely inspired schedule?Elizabeth: I told him I'd tell Wanda.

Viti: Did he deviate from the schedule?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: How did that make you feel Miss Smart?

Elizabeth: One for the Smart team.

Viti: Miss Smart, did he use or announce a revelation before about oral sex, before he forced you to perform oral sex?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What was that revelation?

Elizabeth: It was simply that we needed to experience all things and that that was a part of it.

Viti: And did he identify this revelation as divinely inspired?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Miss Smart, while you were in Utah with the defendant, did he describe to you your duties and responsibilities to him?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What were those duties and responsibilities?

Elizabeth: He said that I needed to be there for him at any time he wanted me. He said that not only was I his wife but I was Wanda's handmaiden, so whatever she told me to do, I need to do as well. And that I should feel very honored in this calling, that it was very sacred, that I had been chosen above all other women on this earth to fulfill it.

Viti: Did he use the word chosen?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did he tell you that part of your responsibilities to him as his wife was to have sex with him?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did he expect you to be his wife in California?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Did he tell you that as part of your responsibilities in California you were expected to have sex with him?

Elizabeth: He didn't say it exactly like that but, yes.

Viti: Did he tell you that you would have wifely responsibilities in California?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Was there every a time in Utah when you tried to leave the camp?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Would you tell the jury about that?

Elizabeth: It was back when we were at the upper camp and he'd had alcohol, and it was a day where he decided that we needed to be naked. And he was very, very drunk as well as was his wife, Wanda, and I was not as drunk as he was. And they were fighting with each other and so I started to, I tried to quietly slip away and go down the trail and I didn't make it very far. They noticed quite quickly and they told me that if I ever tried that again that I would be killed, and I would be stopped by an angel with a sword, and I would be cut down. And he also said that he would put me back on the cable …, he would tether me again.

Viti: Did you ever try to leave the camp or escape again after that time?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Was there ever a time in Utah where you got stick or fell ill physically ill?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Can you describe that for the jury?

Elizabeth: Yes. He had made me drink a little that day and I'm not, I do not like seafood at all and he knew that and he had brought back salmon and he had put a big piece on my plate for me to eat. I could only take a couple of bites and I just looked at the salmon and I threw up after.

Viti: What did he say to you when you threw up?Elizabeth: He just said that that just showed where I was spiritually.

Viti: How did he know you didn't like seafood.

Elizabeth: Because I had told him.

Viti: Let's turn our attention to the bus ride to California. During the bus ride, did anybody try speak to you that you recall?

Elizabeth: I don't remember.

Viti: Do you recall when left for California?

Elizabeth: I think it was October, sometime in October.

Viti: How long was bus ride?

Elizabeth: It was quite long, 12 or 14 hours.

Viti: What did you do when you arrived San Diego?

Elizabeth: We got off at the bus station and he took map out to look for somewhere to go.

Viti: What map was this?

Elizabeth: The map he had taken from library. He found a small town or suburb of San Diego called Lakeside at end of one of the metro lines of the bus ride, so we took the metro out and the bus out to this place and we got there and we looked for a lake. And I think he was little bit disappointed because it was a manmade lake with a boardwalk around it. It wasn't a rural lakeside with trees and more of rural area, so he told us he found lake and boardwalk. He said he was gonna go find our new camp and it was shortly after that he came back and said he found it.

Viti: What reason did he give for choosing Lakseide before arriving at Lakeside?

Elizabeth: He said sounds like good place to go to be able to have a campsite without . . . We would just find better place go live without other people around.

Viti: How long did it take you get to Lakeside from San Diego?

Elizabeth: Between an hour and two hours.

Viti: When the defendant came back to you while walking in Lakeside, what did you do?

Elizabeth: We went with him to where he found a campsite.

Viti: Can you describe the campsite for the jury?

Elizabeth: Visually, it's like the fire swamp out of "The Princess Bride." But there was a road that headed, a highway out that headed up the canyon or up into mountains. We headed up that road. There was high school and a couple fields like sports fields. Then a BMX biking sort of track or jumping place. Then after that we came to a dry river bed, that was all sandy and had gross dead trees. It went down off the highway into the base of this riverbed then climbed up the other side.

Viti: The other side was where the campsite was at, a lot of vegetation around this site?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Could you see it from highway, the campsite?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Describe what was in the immediate vicinity of new the campsite?

Elizabeth: On the backside of the camp there was horseback riding trails. There was often times you would see little model airplanes flying over head. There was a model airplane flying park nearby. On the other side highway, there was large rocky mountain hill sort of place. There were a lot of cactus on the other side.

Viti: Who lived in the immediate vicinity of the campsite?

Elizabeth: There was three of us, but then if you wandered down the riverbed you would find other homeless camps. Or if you wandered up the riverbed or to the other side of the highway you would find other homeless camps.

Viti: Did defendant set up camp?

Elizabeth: Yes. He cut down some of the branches. They're not big trees and strong trees, just sort of. Branches are very pliable, so he would take branches, duct tape them together so they would overlap a little bit in the middle, bend into an arch shape. We made four or so of these arches, then he flattened out an area, dug little trench and put arches into place. He laid a tarp over top of branches, so it was a caterpillarish shape and on the inside, he laid tarps down for the floor.

Viti: In this campsite, were there any actual tents he set up?

Elizabeth: A short while later. I don't remember if an actual tent or another smaller version of the caterpillar sort of tent.

Viti: After set up camp the first day, what did he do?

Elizabeth: He raped me.

Viti: How long had you been in California before that happened?

Elizabeth: Within 24 hours.

Viti: When you initially got to California with the defendant and Ms. Barzee, would you leave that camp often?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Where would you go? What kinds of things did you do?

Elizabeth: Sometimes go into Lakeside and maybe eat something by the lake. Or sometimes go into San Diego and we would walk around San Diego. I remember we went to the Hometwon Buffet a couple of times.

Viti: What is Hometown Buffet?

Elizabeth: A restaurant.

Viti: When he went about Laskeside or San Diego, would he preach or minister?

Elizabeth: He would panhandle and he would call that ministering. And sometimes if people really wanted know or seemed genuinely interested, he would give them a small piece of paper that he had written and called the declaration of our faith.

Viti: When you were allowed to go to Lakeside or to San Diego, what would you wear?

Elizabeth: The linen robes and headpiece with both veils>

Viti: When you say both veils, you mean the one veil covering your eyes?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Would Wanda wear same thing?

Elizabeth: YesViti: Government exhibit 27. Do you recognize that?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What do you recognize that to be?

Elizabeth: That's the defendant and his wife and myself in San Diego.

Viti: Can you use laser pointer to indicate where the three of you are located?

Elizabeth: Right there.

Viti: Could we have a close up of that … where is the defendant?

Elizabeth: There.

Viti: And what about Ms. Barzee?

Elizabeth: I think that's her there.

Viti: Thank you. Do you recall visiting any stores in Lakeside?

Elizabeth: Um, I remember, yes.

Viti: What stores, in what kinds of stores would you visit?

Elizabeth: Grocery stores or convenience stores.

Viti: Do you remember any of these stores in particular?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Can you tell the jury which one?

Elizabeth: I remember there was sort of a small produce store on one of the sides of the lake and it was run by a man who I believe was Muslim. And one day I remember him commenting to the defendant that he hoped his wife and daughter would dress as modestly as we did, and he said it was good to see people practicing their religion so faithfully.

Viti: And at this time, during this conversation, were you and Wanda wearing robes and veils?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: And during this discussion with the owner, did the defendant ever tell the owner that you were his wife?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Did he identify himself as a prophet?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: One mighty and strong?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Davidic king?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Did he tell the owner that he himself was not a Muslim?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: During the time the defendant held you in Lakeside did he ever force you to look at pornography?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viit: Was that on more than one occasion?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Can you explain the first time that happened?

Elizabeth: Yes. He had gone into San Diego and come back with a pornography magazine.

Viti: Before he went to San Diego what did he tell you was going to do?

Elizabeth: He just said he was going to minister.

Viti: Continue.

Elizabeth: He came back with a magazine of pornography and said that he'd received revelation and been instructed to look at pornography, that we needed to sink below that as well.

Viti: Did he tell you that this revelation was divinely inspired?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What happened after he was divinely inspired to view pornography?

Elizabeth: He opened it up and started looking at it.

Viti: Where were you when this happened?

Elizabeth: I was there with him and Wanda.

Viti: What did he do when he asked you to look at pornography?

Elizabeth: He said we all needed to look at it.

Viti: And did you at that time?

Elizabeth: Um, not to the extent that he wanted me to.

Viti: What do you mean by that?

Elizabeth: I glanced at it, but I didn't feel comfortable looking at it.

Viti: Did he say anything to you at that time?

Elizabeth: Nothing that I can recall.

Viti: What did he do after he finished viewing the pornography?

Elizabeth: He raped me.

Viti: Where were you when you were viewing the pornography?

Elizabeth: We were back at the camp.

Viti: Were you in one of the shelters, or in the tents?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Which one?

Elizabeth: In his tent he made for him.

Viti: Did he have a name for that tent?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What was that name?

Elizabeth: It was the altar of Immanuel.

Viti: When was the second time you were made to look at the pornography?

Elizabeth: It was shortly after. I think it was the next day … he said that I needed to really look at it this time.

Viti: What did he do?

Elizabeth: He sat there with me and would turn the pages and talk about the women in the photographs.

Viti: Was this a magazine?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Do your recall the name of the magazine?

Elizabeth: It was called Hustler I think.

Viti: In general, can you describe the pictures in Hustler magazine?

Elizabeth: They were very explicit. They showed, they didn't hide anything. They showed everything on a woman and everything that can be done between a man and a woman.

Viti: And were you looking at the pornography this time?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Was he forcing you to do that?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: How?

Elizabeth: He said that I had to, he said that I had to sink below this before I could rise above it.

Viti: Was he making any comments about the pictures in the magazine.

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What comments was he making?

Elizabeth: He would talk about the women and their bodies and, um, he would remark on how they were all different and what they reminded him of.

Viti: What did he tell you they reminded him of?

Elizabeth: One woman in particular he talked about how she just flowered open and compared it to a flower.

Viti: Was he critical about the women at all, morally or spiritually?

Elizabeth: No. He just said that, no, he wasn't. He said that they didn't know what they were doing that's all.

Viti: Did he call them whores in Babylon?

Elizabeth: No

Viti: Where were you when you viewed the Hustler magazine with him?

Elizabeth: I was in his tent.

Viti: Is that the altar of Immanuel?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What did he do after you viewed the pornography?

Elizabeth: He raped me.

Viti: How much time passed after viewing the pornography did he rape you?

Elizabeth: No time.

Viti: Miss Smart, was there ever a time in California where you fell ill, became physically ill?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Would you tell the jury about that occasion?

Elizabeth: He said it was time for Wanda and I to start drinking again, so he had brought back, I think it was a 12-pack or maybe it wasn't a 12-pack, but he had quite a few cans of beer. And he handed one to me and told me to drink and handed one to Wanda told her to drink it. So we drank it and he had also brought back KFC for us to eat and so we ate that then he started drinking another one. And by this time I was just so sick of being sober and when I saw him starting to drink another one, I said I wanted to drink another one, too. And Wanda jumped right on that and said, "It's not fair you to get to drink as much as you want," and he handed us another one and I couldn't even finish it. I remember lying down feeling so sick, and he gave me a silver bowl in case I threw up. And I remember as soon as he took the silver bowl away from me, I threw up and I was lying down, and it was all over my face and my hair, and when I woke up the next morning, I was in the same position. I had throw up dried on my face and in my hair.

Viti: What did he say?

Elizabeth: He said that reflected my true state lying face down in my vomit.

Viti: Miss Smart, what kind of beer was it?

Elizabeth: It was called Steel Reserve.

Viti: How big were the cans?

Elizabeth: They were pretty big. They were big, they weren't little.

Viti: Were they bigger than a Coke can?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Was there anything special about this kind of beer?

Elizabeth: It was in California, so the alcohol percentage was higher there, and I remember reading on the label that it had extra hops.

Viti: What happened to the divine revelation about you and Wanda not drinking alcohol?

Elizabeth: It was dismissed.

Viti: Who dismissed that?

Elizabeth: The defendant.

Viti: Can you explain that?

Elizabeth: He said there was a time and place for all things and the time and place had come again where we needed to drink again.

Viti: Miss Smart, while you were being held in California, did the defendant ever inform you that he was visiting LDS chapels?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Can you explain that?

Elizabeth: Yes. He said that we had come to California to find a another wife and now he was beginning his search for another wife and that he was going to go around to different LDS chapels until he found her.

Viti: Did he tell you why they needed to be at LDS chapels instead of any other denomination?

Elizabeth: So they would have the basic LDS beliefs already. Just that, that they would already have the LDS beliefs.

Viti: Did he tell you why they needed the LDS beliefs?

Elizabeth: Yes. He said the LDS Church was the true church, but since the deceased prophet Ezra Taft Benson, the mantle had fallen on him and the church was the true church but everyone had gone astray.

Viti: Did he tell you the age the LDS females would be?

Elizabeth: He said they needed to be young, so they were still malleable.

Viti: Did he tell you ever about trying to establish a relationship with a non-LDS female?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: What did he tell you about that?

Elizabeth: He had said that they had tried and that it didn't work.

Viti: Did he give you more details about that experience?

Elizabeth: Yes. He he said her name was Kelly and that she was African-American and that they had tried to live plural marriage with her. He then tried moving in with her. They even lived with her, and I don't recall what made them decide to move back out, but that Wanda was very offended and, um, that one day he went out and he didn't tell her where he was going and he went back to this woman Kelly and he slept with her and when he came back Wanda said, "You went to see Kelly, Didn't you?" And he said yes, and he slept with her again, and I don't think they had contact with her again for a while but they decided they needed to invite her up to the tepee for a weekend up in the mountains of Utah where they had it set up, where she would stay with them for a weekend and they would give it another try. But when they went there this woman Kelly was there with another man, so after that he knew it needed to be a young LDS girl.Viti: Miss Smart, I believe we were at a point where you and Ms. Barzee were at the upper camp. The defendant had left. Could you describe your condition at the upper camp as the days passed before the defendant returned?

Elizabeth: As the days passed, it got harder and harder to move until finally the only way we would move was if we had to go to bathroom.

Viti: When the defendant left camp that time, what was he wearing?

Elizabeth: He had on his robes.

Viti: (Describe his return to camp.)

Elizabeth: Yes. It was late at night and he yelled out, "Hepsapah!" "Shurjesha!" Then he came back and we pulled ourselves up into a slump sort of, and he came back and he seemed very pleased with himself, like quite happy, and he had stopped by KFC and asked for leftovers. They gave him some leftovers so he gave us some to eat.

Viti: What was he wearing when came back?

Elizabeth: He had on normal street clothing when he came back.

Viti: When he came back, did he explain to you where he had been for the last week or so?

Elizabeth: Yes. He said he had been put into, taken to jail …, that's where he said he had been. He said when he left the previous week, he went down and he had bought a beer, was walking around and saw a woman taking prescription pills. He asked her for one or two but she refused to give him any. Somehow he was able to trick her, and he stole prescription medication and ran off. He said that he had broken into one of churches in Lakeside and woke up the next morning and found himself in children's nursery in this church building. There was woman there and several police officers who escorted him to the jail.

Viti: Let me stop you there and go back little bit. When he told you he went and bought beer, what did Wanda say?

Elizabeth: She told him she was upset. She didn't have a whole lot of anger, didn't have energy to support that kind of anger at that moment, but she as quite upset with him for spending money he had on beer instead of bus fare or something to eat, something to bring back to us. And I just remember him saying that it was just so hard for him to go to face the world. That's what he needed to be able to go out and face the world.

Viti: During the time the defendant held you, did he talk to you about medicine?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did he take medication?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: Did he tell you prescription medication he took from lady, tell you what that was?

Elizabeth: No, I don't think he knew what it was.

Viti: Did he tell you how he got into the nursery of this church?

Elizabeth: Yes. He said he had thrown a brick or rock or he had broken a window to get in.

Viti: Did he tell you if he did anything with the heavenly robes he was wearing? Did he tell you what if anything he did with the heavenly robe he was wearing when he threw a rock through the window?

Elizabeth: I don't remember. I have a vague memory of him telling me he removed it, but I don't remember for certain.

Viti: What did he tell you happened when he got to the jail?

Elizabeth: He said that they started putting, they were trying to identify him and search his records and match his fingerprints into the system.

Viti: Did he tell you what name he gave?

Elizabeth: Yes. He said he used the name Michael Jensen.

Viti: What did he tell you happened after he identified himself as Michael Jensen?

Elizabeth: A woman searched to see any matches to the name or fingerprints. She said nothing came up on him.

Viti: What did he tell you happened next?

Elizabeth: He said he was sitting cross-legged on the floor, didn't have robes on at that point, but did have on the long thermal underwear. There was large hole in thermal underwear in his crotch area, and he said that his private parts were hanging out of this hole and he knew this woman could see everything and she liked what she saw.

Viti: Did he use the term "private parts?"

Elizabeth: No. His "package."

Viti: What was his demeanor when he was telling you or relating this story to you?

Elizabeth: He seemed very proud of himself.

Viti: During the time that the defendant held you during the nine months, were there other occasions where the defendant expressed pride or spoke highly of his private parts or "package" as he described it?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Can you describe some occasions?

Elizabeth: One time we were up at the upper camp back in Utah and he was squatting down and he was commenting on how well hung he was and what a good package he had. Um, he also there was another time that he gave his private parts a name and he called it "Immanuel's pride."

Viti: Where there occasions when Ms. Barzee referred to his private parts as "Immanuel's pride"?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: When would that be?

Elizabeth: When he gave himself that name, they had talked about it as well.

Viti: Miss Smart, did you ever read a journal that was entitled the Book of Immanuel David Isaiah?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Explain to the jury what the book is.

Elizabeth: The Book of Immanuel David Isaiah is a book he wrote and complied himself of what he claimed were his revelations, and they covered, I believe it was his sort of a calling to be who he was, it was his wife's blessing or revelation. There were several others, one including talking about taking seven wives and then seven times seven wives and it was what he wanted it to be.

Viti: Did he tell you that the Book of Immanuel David Isaiah was divinely inspired?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did he tell you it was very important to him, that book?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did he indicate to you that this was a profession of his faith or a confession of his faith?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: You speak French better than I do. What is his religion, raison d'etre?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did he refer to it a lot in your nine months?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did you ever hear him call the Book of Immanuel David Isaiah as "Immanuel's pride?"

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: Did you ever hear him call or refer to his heart as "Immanuel's pride"?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: Did you ever hear him refer to his conscience as "Immanuel's pride"?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: His good works as "Immanuel's pride"?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: The only thing you every heard him refer to as "Immanuel's pride" was his "package"?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: His penis?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Could you describe, did the defendant ever boast about his sexual prowess?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Now getting back to what the defendant told you about his experience in the San Diego jail. Did he tell you why he provided the name of Michael Jensen?

Elizabeth: No, it was just the one that came to him.

Viti: What did he tell you happened after he was booked into the San Diego County Jail and they gave him the name?

Elizabeth: He was told he'd be there three business days, but it was a weekend, a holiday weekend, so that extended his stay for quite some time. And he talked about when he finally went before a judge, and he was asked if he pleaded guilty, if he did in fact break the window. And he said that he didn't, and he said there was a younger attorney who was there and advised him to admit that he'd done it and he'd be let go that day. He'd have to pay a fine and do community service and after receiving that counsel, he admitted he broke the window and then he left.

Viti: What was his attitude or his demeanor when he told you this or related this to you?

Elizabeth: He was very pleased with himself. He said the young lawyer or attorney didn't realize what a big blessing he had in aiding the Davidic king.

Viti: Did he indicate to you, withdrawn. Did he indicate to you that he had fooled them at that time?

Elizabeth: Yes, he just said they didn't realize who he really was and that one day they would.

Viti: How many days after he returned did it take you to regain your strength?

Elizabeth: It was a few days.

Viti: How did the defendant treat you?

Elizabeth: It was life as usual for him.

Viti: Did that life as usual include raping you?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: During that time, did he talk about leaving California?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Can you describe those conversations?

Elizabeth: He just said he felt like the time had come to start searching for another wife.

Viti: Was there anything that precipitated this discussion?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Tell the jury what that was.

Elizabeth: One day we were sitting in a smaller caterpillar type of tent and we heard a helicopter, and it sounded like it was getting closer and closer, and I couldn't tell, but it seemed very close. He was able to sit in the tent and see the helicopter at a slanted angle so the helicopter couldn't see him.

Viti: What did he tell you to do while the helicopter was hovering?

Elizabeth: He told us to stay back inside the tent.

Viti: After this encounter, can you tell the members of the jury what happened?

Elizabeth: After this encounter, the need to leave was greater.

Viti: Miss Smart, after these encounters — whether they were with law enforcement officers or people who stumbled near the camp — can you describe whether the defendant's focus changed at all?

Elizabeth: He would want to make sure that we were well-hidden, that we couldn't be traced, um, so his focus on keeping us not found would become heightened again.

Viti: After the helicopter incident, withdrawn. Where did he discuss moving to?

Elizabeth: He discussed, he would just say different cities — big cities like Chicago or Philadelphia or, um, those are the two I can remember him saying. But I remember him saying, like, bigger cities.

Viti: On this occasion, did you provide any input as to where you should travel next?

Elizabeth: Yes I did.

Viti: What input did you provide?

Elizabeth: I told him we should return to Salt Lake City.

Viti: Why?

Elizabeth: Because I felt the more cities and farther we got, the less chances I had of being found.

Viti: Where did you tell him that idea came from?

Elizabeth: I told him I wasn't sure, but I felt that God had told me. Anything I said was immediately disregarded. If I said that God had told me that, then he would listen a little bit more.

Viti: Did you tell him anything else to make Salt Lake City more attractive to him?

Elizabeth: I told him there were more girls camps up in the mountains and that if he wanted, he could plunder more wives.

Viti: What kind of girls camps?

Elizabeth: Mormon girls camps. He said he would have to pray about it, but not long after he said he thought it was a good idea.

Viti: Did he tell you why he thought it was a good idea?

Elizabeth: He said he thought I was inspired to go back.

Viti: Did he tell you anything further about the girls camps?

Elizabeth: He said we could hike through the mountains and take them with machetes and hike back.

Viti: Did you provide any input into how you would return?

Elizabeth: I said we should hitchhike back.

Viti: How did you justify hitchhiking back to the defendant?

Elizabeth: I said I needed experience. All these things like drinking, smoking, lying in my vomit. And if I was to reach their level, I needed to experience everything they experienced. I needed to go below hitchhiking before I could rise above it

Viti: Did he discuss in his past that he had hitchhiked?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: What did he tell you?

Elizabeth: He said they had hitchhiked around the country.

Viti: How did the defendant react to your suggestion to hitchhike?

Elizabeth: He didn't want to at first, but then Wanda said she thought it was good idea, too, so after that he agreed.

Viti: Was there any discussion as to what you would wear when hitchhiking?

Elizabeth: Yes. He said I needed be disguised, but that I shouldn't wear robes because people probably wouldn't pick us up.

Viti: Did he mention why he thought people wouldn't pick you up?

Elizabeth: People would think we were Muslim and it was too close after 911 happened.

Viti: Did the defendant express any concern or worry about hitchhiking?

Elizabeth: Just that I needed be disguised, and I was told not to speak. If I did speak, I was to refer to him as Dad and to Wanda as Mom, and we were to be traveling preachers.

Viti: Turn your attention to his concern about someone recognizing you. Did he have any plan regarding hiding your identity?

Elizabeth: Yes. At first he wanted to dye my hair a different color, but I wasn't too excited about that idea and neither was Wanda, his wife.

Viti: What happened after you conveyed lack of enthusiasm for dying your hair?

Elizabeth: He decided we should get a wig and sunglasses instead.

Viti: Did he purchase a wig and sunglasses. Do you recall where?

Elizabeth: It wasn't a nice store. It was a very cheap quality store and I believe it was in El Cajon.

Viti: Can you describe the wig?

Elizabeth: It was ugly, bad quality, gray, curly.

(Special agent Larole approaches.)

Viti: Miss Smart, I want you look at government exhibit 39. Do you recognize that?

Elizabeth: Yes. The wig that was purchased and I was forced to wear it.

Viti: Anything else on the wig or in the wig?

Elizabeth: Yes. Bobby pins. I put them there because hair was falling out all over me, falling on my face and my neck and I didn't like it.

Viti: Do you recognize government exhibit 40?

Elizabeth: Yes. Sunglasses I was forced to wear coming back to Utah.

(published to jury)

Viti: Miss Smart, when the defendant purchased the wig and sunglasses, were you still living at the upper campsite?

Elizabeth: It was, I believe it was the day before we left and so we had temporarily moved to the lower campsite for the last night before we departed.

Viti: Do you recognize (exhibit) 39A?

Elizabeth: Yes. It's a tag from the wig.

Viti: Miss Smart, what type of clothes did you wear when you hitchhiked?

Elizabeth: Normal street clothing.

Viti: And is that true for the defendant and Wanda?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: What happened to the robes you had been wearing?

Elizabeth: They were packed away.

Viti: Where were they packed away?

Elizabeth: Inside green bags, I believe.

Viti: Did the defendant provide a story to tell those that you might encounter during hitchhiking?

Elizabeth: Yes. His name was Peter Marshall, Wanda's name was Juliette Marshall and my name was Augustine Marshall, that I was their daughter and that we were traveling preachers.

Viti: Where did he tell you to say you were from?

Elizabeth: Florida.

Viti: And was Wanda to be your real mother?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: What did he tell you to say?

Elizabeth: That she was my stepmother.

Viti: How old did he tell you you were to tell others?

Elizabeth: That I was 18.

Viti: Turning your attention to time you left upper camp for good. What did you do in preparation to leave upper camp?

Elizabeth: The tent structures were taken down, a lot of things were destroyed because they were too heavy to try to hitch back to Utah with. Some books were destroyed, other things were destroyed, and then camp was made to look like no one had been there for a long time.

Viti: How many nights after you left upper camp, do you recall spending at lower camp?

Elizabeth: Just one.

Viti: And was this the lower camp that you described as the fire swamp of "Princess Bride?"

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: For those that don't know, what is the fire swamp of "Princess Bride?"

Elizabeth: It's a very ugly, dirty gross place where you can touch one of the tress and like a million little dead twigs or leaves or things fall off. There are rats in the fire swamp and other rodents, very dirty, its not pretty. There's no green or color, just brown and gray, very sandy.

Viti: And was this what lower camp was like?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did the defendant make any plans for how you were to hitchhike back to Utah?

Elizabeth: Yes. We would just go from city to city, point to point. Instead of holding a sign up that said Salt Lake City, it was just small intervals, not long stretches at a time.

Viti: Did the defendant tell you why they were to be small intervals instead of large stretches?

Elizabeth: He said we were more likely to be picked up if it were small intervals than if it were long intervals.

Viti: Did he tell you what to do when you were hitchhiking, when you were actually hitching for a ride?

Elizabeth: We would stand back. We wouldn't put our thumbs out, only him. We would stand a little bit behind him.

Viti: Did he give a reason for this?

Elizabeth: Not that I can recall.

Viti: Did there come a time when you started hitchhiking from California?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Do you remember the date?

Elizabeth: Beginning of March.

Viti: Did he give you instructions on how you were supposed to behave while you were hitchhiking?

Elizabeth: I wasn't supposed to say anything. I was supposed to stay with him at all times, by him at all times. He said I already knew what the consequences would be if I took any action.

Viti: Miss Smart, let's just review some topics about the time you were held in California. First topic, lets talk about alcohol consumption during the time the defendant was in California. Would the defendant drink alcohol?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did he drink very often?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: What was the frequency?

Elizabeth: Almost daily.

Viti: Would you observe him to be intoxicated during these times?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did he ever give a reason for his drinking while he was in California?

Elizabeth: Just that he couldn't face the world, he couldn't face it.

Viti: Do you recall your birthday in November 2002?

Elizabeth: Vaguely.

Viti: What do you recall about that day?

Elizabeth: That I was left in camp with his wife and, um, in the morning he left and then he came back later that evening and he brought me a candy bar.

Viti: What else did he do that evening?

Elizabeth: He also raped me.

Viti: I want to return your attention to Thanksgiving, November 2002. Do you recall Thanksgiving?

Elizabeth: Um, we went into San Diego.

Viti: And where did you go when you went into San Diego?

Elizabeth: I don't remember if it was Thanksgiving or Christmas but we went to a large convention center where they were feeding people.

Viti: And where was that, in San Diego itself?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: When you went to the convention center, how were you dressed?

Elizabeth: In our robes.

Viti: Were you wearing the veil, both veils?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Was Wanda dressed that way as well?

Elizabeth: Yes. I don't remember if it was Thanksgiving or Christmas. It could have been either day that I just described.

Viti: Going into San Diego?

Elizabeth: And going into the convention center where we were served a meal.

Viti: And did the Salvation Army do that, do you recall?

Elizabeth: I believe so.

Viti: Miss Smart, please take look at government exhibit 38 and can you tell us what it is.

Elizabeth: It is the meal that we ate at the convention center.

Viti: Does that refresh your recollection, that photo, as to whether it was Christmas or Thanksgiving in 2002?

Elizabeth: I believe it was Christmas, but I … I believe it was Christmas.

Viti: With the pointer, can you identify the defendant in that photograph?

Elizabeth: Right there.

Viti: Can you identify Wanda Barzee in that photo?

Elizabeth: There.

Viti: Can you identify yourself?

Elizabeth: That's me.

Viti: Can you describe how you ate, wearing that veil?

Elizabeth: In one hand I'm holding the fork and with the other hand I'd lift the veil just enough.

Viti: Did the defendant instruct you as to how far you should life the veil?

Elizabeth: He said I should only lift it as far as I needed to put the food in my mouth.

Viti: While you were in California, did you ever observe the defendant panhandle?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: What as his demeanor like when he would panhandle?

Elizabeth: It was the same way as when he would panhandle in Salt Lake City. He was calm, almost timid, quiet, sincere, gracious.

Viti: He never proclaimed himself to be a prophet in public?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: Davidic king?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: The one mighty and strong?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: Did he use archaic English when he panhandled?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: Did he tell people to repent when he panhandled?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: What would you and Wanda do when he was panhandling?

Elizabeth: Stand behind him.

Viti: You had mentioned when he panhandled in Utah, some people would speak to him about religion or what religion he was. Did that occur in California also?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did he provide information to people who were curious about his religion?

Elizabeth: Sometimes.

Viti: Did he ever give people anything when they were curious about his religion?

Elizabeth: Sometimes.

Viti: What would he give them?

Elizabeth: A piece of paper call the Declaration of our Faith where he wrote some of the things he believed.

Viti: Look at government exhibit 59. Do you recognize that?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: What do you recognize that to be?

Elizabeth: The piece of paper he would give people if they asked.

Viti: If they asked about his religion?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did he have several copies of that?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: How did he make those copies?

Elizabeth: He copied them off at Kinkos.

Viti: Who wrote the Declaration?

Elizabeth: He wrote it, but his wife went back and rewrote it in this sort of calligraphy writing.

Viti: Was Ms. Barzee adept at calligraphy?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Miss Smart, during the time you were in California, did the defendant have relations?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Besides ones you already told us occurred in California, any others you can recall?

Elizabeth: Yes … the defendant and his wife had gotten into a fight — again — and it was over me — again — and he said that he felt like the Lord had something to tell her — again — and so he gave her a blessing … and in the blessing he said that the time had come to make a new schedule that would include him having sexual intercourse with me first without ever ejaculating and she would lie right next to me, and when he felt ready to ejaculate, he would switch over and ejaculate into her.

Viti: Did he tell Wanda why it was important?

Elizabeth: Yes, he said because she had had a hysterectomy, her womb would be open, and she would produce an heir to the throne, a Davidic king.

Viti: At this time did it seem he was taking advantage of Wanda?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did this new arrangement, was this something he claimed to be divinely inspired?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did this divinely inspired new arrangement result in you being sexually abused less?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: Miss Smart, at that time of this revelation had you begun your period?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Was that in California?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: And did he know about it?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Other than the revelation you already spoke about with respect to allowing you and Ms. Barzee to drink alcohol or smoke tobacco, did he have any other revelations in California with respect to alcohol?

Elizabeth: Yes … There came a time when he said that our need for drinking alcohol was over, but it still remained to him. He could still smoke and drink as he chose.

Viti: And what precipitated that particular revelation?

Elizabeth: It was just his wife being upset with him.

Viti: Upset with him about what?

Elizabeth: About him drinking so much and not sharing.

Viti: And did this revelation result in him drinking less?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: But did it relieve Wanda's anger?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did he tell Wanda it was divinely inspired?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did he give a reason during the revelation to Wanda why he needed to drink?

Elizabeth: So he could go and face the world.

Viti: While he was in California, holding you in California, did he discuss your duties to him?

Elizabeth: Yes … he said I needed to continue to be there and available for him when he needed me, wanted me, and by that I mean being there for his sexual needs and desires, and he also told me it was my duty to clean up around the camp and that although that might seem mundane, all those things had eternal significance. They were of eternal value and weight.

Viti: If you didn't do that around camp, would it get done?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: While you were in California, did the defendant rename you or give you another name?

Elizabeth: He didn't rename me, and he didn't give me another name. He said the time had come when I needed to rise up to the occasion and go by the name they originally called me at the beginning of my nine months of hell, Shurjesha.

Viti: Can you briefly describe some of the cities or towns through which you hitchhiked from California to Utah, starting with the first one you remember, the first night or day you spent hitchhiking?

Elizabeth: It was to a city … They're all a bit mixed up, but I believe it was Escondido.

Viti: How did you get to Escondido?

Elizabeth: We hitchhiked.

Viti: Do you recall who picked you up?

Elizabeth: His last name was Ruben.

Viti: Can you explain what happened when you were picked up by Mr. Ruben?

Elizabeth: He was very kind. He picked us up and asked where we were headed. We said we were going to Escondido. He asked where, and the defendant asked if he knew of a campground or place we could stay, and he talked about place he liked … he used to go fishing there with his son … He took us to a campground, paid for a campsite, then he asked us if we needed any help and took us to a grocery store to get groceries, then returned us to the campground.

Viti: He paid for all this himself?

Elizabeth: I believe so.

Viti: During the time the defendant spent with Mr. Ruben, do you recall any conversation he (Mitchell) had with Mr. Ruben?

Elizabeth: I remember him asking if he knew anywhere, a campground or anywhere we could stay. I remember them talking about the campground.

Viti: Do you recall if they talked about religion?

Elizabeth: I think they did a little bit, but if they did, it wasn't anything that was out of normal religions. If they did talk about religion, they didn't talk about polygamy or plural marriage. They didn't talk about a Davidic king, or he didn't proclaim himself to be a Davidic king or a prophet or the one mighty and strong. If they did talk about it, it was all very mainstream.

Viti: Did Mr. Ruben try to speak to you?

Elizabeth: I don't remember.

Viti: After you spent the night in Escondido, where else can you recall that you stayed or towns through which you went?

Elizabeth: I remember going to … I don't remember if we went back to El Cajon or … but I remember going to Ramona and Borrego Springs and … I believe it was was Brawley and Blythe and Las Vegas and Orem and Salt Lake.

Viti: Do you remember any persons who picked you up?

Elizabeth: Yes, I remember a few people. I remember this one man who drove an old RV, a Winnebago RV, who drove past us and turned around and came back and picked us up. His name was Charlie, and he was a nudist, and I remember him saying that he picked us up because there were women there. And on the inside of his RV, I remember seeing pictures of women that had very little clothing on or none, and I remember him saying that he could take us further than we wanted to go if we would be willing to spend one night on the road at a natural hot spring that wasn't too far away from where we were at that point. So we ended up staying the night by this natural hot spring until 2 a.m. in the morning. And I remember another man who picked us up shortly after Charlie had dropped us off, and it was in a very rickety, small car that when it hit a certain speed, the back part of the car would start to shake. And I remember him saying something about going back and forth over the border to Mexico, but I remember thinking that if I stepped outside the car on to solid ground, it would be a miracle that I survived that ride. I remember going toward Borrego Springs, a woman stopped to pick us up. The only reason she stopped was because she knew her husband was right behind her or in front of her with the lawn mower. She knew she would be OK because he was right there. She dropped us off in Borrego Springs. I remember being stranded out in the desert for what felt like a really long time without food or water. Finally, a man picked us up who was, I believe, said he was chef for one of the golf courses out in the desert. He took us a little ways. Another man picked us up and took us two miles. He liked to go sit out in the desert by himself, be alone out in the desert alone with his car by himself. One day we were stranded in the desert, and a white truck drove by and stopped. He said he had seen us in the same spot that morning and thought we didn't have water. He brought us water but couldn't pick us up. I think that's all the people I remember before Las Vegas.

Viti: This trip was very physically difficult what you described, is that correct?

Elizabeth: Yes

Viti: Please tell the jury what happened when you got to Vegas, what you remember about Vegas?

Elizabeth: Um, Vegas is quite blurry, but I remember going to either a Jack in the Box or a Burger King and being approached by a police officer. I don't remember a whole lot of what he said. I don't remember very much, but I remember after that the defendant was very anxious to leave Las Vegas. We went to a truck stop, a big semi stop and he went into the bathroom and I was left with his wife and there was a man who approached us and asked if we needed a ride. He asked where we were headed we said St. George, and he said he could take us. Then, the defendant's wife, Ms. Barzee, said we just have to wait a minute for my husband to come out. The truck driver seemed a little disappointed a man was coming but still took us to St. George. On the way I was in the back of their cab with Ms. Barzee and we were going through I believe its called the Virgin River Canyon and it's a very unique sort of canyon with a lot of holes … in the walls. He asked if I'd ever been there and the defendant said I hadn't and he said why don't you come up here and watch. He said it's not as pretty as it is in the day time … the defendant had to move to the back but he was still very much forward in between the two seats his head was popping out there.

Viti: All the people from the time Mr. Ruben picked you up to when this truck driver dropped you off, were there times the defendant discussed religious aspects such as the Davidic king, polygamy, things of that nature?

Elizabeth: No.

Viti: Do you remember why the police officer stopped you, do you have any recollection of that?

Elizabeth: He said they were looking for a missing child, a missing girl, I can't remember which word exactly.

Viti: How far did the truck driver who picked you up in Las Vegas take you?

Elizabeth: He ended up taking us all the way to Orem.

Viti: What happened in Orem?

Elizabeth: We were dropped off in the truck yard and across the truck yard there was a bridge or a highway or overpass or something there was a park and I recall the park being called Camelot.

Viti: What kind of park was it?

Elizabeth: It was quite late at night and I don't' exactly remember all the details but it was a park, it was like a re-enactment of King Arthur and the round table sort of place.

Viti: What time were you dropped off at this park do you recall?

Elizabeth: It was maybe 2 in the morning

Viti: Do you recall the date?

Elizabeth: March 12.

Viti: What happened when you were dropped off in the park?

Elizabeth: The tent was set up and I was raped for the last time, uh. Yes.

Viti: And did the defendant sexually abuse you, rape you, while you were hitchhiking to Orem?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: What happened when you woke up from our sleep that evening, if you went to sleep … that morning?

Elizabeth: We packed the tent and continued on toward Salt Lake.

Viti: Please tell us what happened.

Elizabeth: I remember stopping at a McDonalds for breakfast, and I remember there was a woman who had just gotten her wisdom teeth out and was still sore and had been several weeks she talked to us, and I think she helped us with our purchase. Then there was a younger man, a boy, maybe college age who gave us a ride to I think it was a bus stop or as far as he was going that our paths were still aligned, and, um, I remember getting into his car you had to be careful because the inside of the door would fall off if you didn't hold it correctly when it was opened, and I remember opening the door and the inside fell off and I remember a bus stop.

Viti: Do you recall where the bus stop was?

Elizabeth: It was close to UVU and there was another student there who started arguing with the defendant about why was I wearing a wig and if it was my real hair why did they dye it gray was it a sign of modesty or humility, what did it mean? Why was I disguised? And I remember the defendant becoming quite unhappy over this exchange. He wanted to get away from this student as fast as he could so we got on to the bus and I think the student was only going one stop or maybe he didn't get on. I don't remember what happened there, but I remember taking the bus to a Walmart, and I got out and we went into the Walmart and got things we would need to get back up in to the mountains, because there would be snow that time of year.

Viti: Where is it that you were going?

Elizabeth: It was the upper camp I was originally taken to …

Elizabeth: There were some things that were bought some things that were not bought.

Viti: What happened after that?

Elizabeth: He started walking down the street and several cop cars pulled up.

Viti: What did the policemen do?

Elizabeth: They asked us who we were and the defendant replied we were traveling preachers and that I was his daughter and then they separated me from them and they started asking me questions and I remember being…

Viti: After he separated you from the defendant what questions where they asking you?

Elizabeth: What my name was, how old I was, where I graduated form high school, what we were doing, if I was Elizabeth Smart, that my parents were very worried about me.

Viti: Were you still wearing the wig and sunglasses?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: How did you respond?

Elizabeth: I gave them the answers I was told to say.

Viti: The answers you were given back in California?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: What happened after that?

Elizabeth: I was handcuffed and put in the back of the police car.

Viti: Can you tell the jury what was going through your mind when you were handcuffed and put in the back of the police vehicle.

Elizabeth: I was very scared. I knew the threats that I had been told for nine months. I knew what they were and I was scared. I didn't know why I was being handcuffed I thought maybe I had done seething wrong, that I was guilty and at the same time I thought that this is it, this is it, I'm done. This is it. Like, this is over.

Viti: When you were handcuffed and put in the police vehicle did it drive away somewhere?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: When you drove away, where was the defendant?

Elizabeth: He was in a different police car.

Viti: Where were you driven?

Elizabeth: To the Sandy police station.

Viti: What happened when you were there?

Elizabeth: I was taken to a smaller room and the policemen told me I could remove the wig and sunglasses and that my dad would arrive shortly.

Viti: Did there come a time when you identified yourself?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: As Elizabeth Smart?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: Did your dad arrive?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Viti: How did you feel?

Elizabeth: I was so happy.

On the witness stand Monday, Smart delivered a detailed and often times very disturbing account of her nightmarish ordeal that began in June of 2002. Yet, after 2 1/2 hours of testimony, she only recounted the first six weeks of her nine month abduction.

Smart was on the witness stand for all of Tuesday's scheduled court session — five hours. She will return to finish her testimony on Wednesday.

Monday, Smart spoke softly, but remained strong as she recounted being taken from her bed at knifepoint, lead up the mountainside behind her house to a hidden camp where Mitchell performed a marriage ceremony, declaring Smart one of his wives.

Smart recounted how she was raped for the first time shortly after the ceremony and continued to be raped on an almost daily basis as well as threatened with her life. She was tethered to a wire cable that was just long enough to reach a bucket on the far end of their campsite that served as a toilet.

Smart, who grew up in a strong LDS household, was forced to drink several times a week and sometimes smoke. She testified that at one point, she did what she could be get drunk faster because she didn't want to be sober while being molested.

She said she devised a plan of survival to do what Mitchell told her until she could figure out how to escape.

Several members of Smart's family were in the courtroom Monday and were expected to return this morning. Elizabeth's mother, Lois, and her sister, Mary Katherine, both also took the witness stand on Monday.

Mitchell has been removed each morning from the courtroom for refusing to stop singing, just as he has for every court hearing for the past several years.

Tuesday is day six of Mitchell's trial, which is scheduled to go at least until Dec. 10.

During opening arguments Monday, defense attorney Park Douglas said the defense was essentially in agreement with the prosecution over what happened to Elizabeth. They're just in disagreement about why it happened, he said. Douglas told the jury the defense would be presenting their arguments for an insanity defense.
