Elizabeth Smart Makes Her Season Two Debut with a Sit-Down Interview with Rape Survivor, Lesley Barton
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (September 15, 2016) — Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen correspondent Elizabeth Smart returns to use her powerful life story and unique perspective to help other survivors share their stories as she continues her quest as an advocate for victims. For her season two debut, Smart sits down with rape survivor Lesley Barton who alleges she was the victim of a horrifying attack at the hands of tanning salon owner, Marc Winner. “He slammed me down on the tanning bed and he’s strangling me...and he’s using his other hand to pull down my pants,” Barton details. Winner was ultimately charged with battery which Barton says “enraged” her and received two years of probation. Later this season, viewers can also tune-in to see Smart work with the FBI to bring a serial child abductor to justice.
