Woman who helped kidnap Elizabeth Smart released from prison

Wanda Barzee

This appearance also comes on the day Barzee was released from prison despite pleas from Smart to keep her behind bars for several more years.

Despite serving all of her state-imposed time, Barzee will now begin five years of supervised release as part of her federal sentence. Her home will be subject to inspections as well, and she'll have to undergo some mental health treatment, the newspaper said.

When Barzee was sentenced 15 years ago, she had to write a letter of apology to Smart.

Barzee was married to Brian David Mitchell when he kidnapped Smart in 2002.

"I just can't imagine how she must be feeling right now, it's insane", said Lock Haven freshman McCartney Register.

In someone else's shoes, she said, "I might naively have thought, 'Well, what was she wearing?"

The lawyer for a woman who helped kidnap Elizabeth Smart in Utah says it's unfair to call her a threat now that she's been released from prison.

Smart was held by Mitchell and Barzee for nine months in Utah and California before her rescue in 2003.

"And I remember - remember when they used to force me to - to drink alcohol", she said to CBS.

Huge 1,000ft spider web mysteriously appears overnight in Greece
As reported by Daily Hellas, a broad area of greenery has been cloaked by the silvery spider-web produced by Tetragnatha spiders. Reuters reports that giant spiderwebs recently started blanketing the shores of Aitoliko in western Greece .

"She was evil and twisted", Smart said.

When asked what specifically she is afraid Barzee will do, Smart said just on past behavior alone, she believes Barzee is unpredictable.

Ed Smart, Elizabeth's father, told the Deseret News Tuesday night he did not know the details of Barzee's release, including who would pick her up from prison or where she would be taken. Sure enough, it was Barzee, Mitchell and Smart.

Barzee's attorney Scott Williams said there's no reliable evidence that his client remains a threat to anyone.

She continued: "I encourage anyone that is experiencing that kind of darkness to find even the smallest speck of hope and hold on to it". Yes, but not just to me. "I don't feel like she has taken any responsibility for her actions, so that's disappointing, but there's nothing we can do about it", he said. "And one time they had me drink so much".

The online registry shows Wanda Barzee's conviction on federal and state charges in the 2002 kidnapping of then 14-year-old Smart. She will be under federal supervision for five years.

After completing her federal prison sentence, Barzee was returned to the Utah State Prison in April 2016.

When she was sentenced, a judge ordered her to serve one to 15 years in state prison, which would be done concurrently with the federal sentence.

The request to modify the conditions of Barzee's supervised release was signed by Meriska Holt.
