ANGELA MONTGOMERY SENTENCED TO FORTY YEARS MEDIA PROTECTS JEHOVAH’S WITNESS IDENTITY OF PEDOPHILE

 

Convicted pedophile pioneer Angela Montgomery has now been sentenced to forty years in prison without parole.  As you will see below, numerous media reported on the sentencing but not one in depth reporter was able to discover Montgomery was a Jehovah’s Witness in good standing supported by local elders and congregation throughout her court hearing.  How could so many reporters miss the ‘white elephant” in the room of a prominent member of Jehovah’s Witnesses being convicted of the sexual abuse of her own children and being protected by the religion for so many years?

 

Angela Montgomery enjoyed the benefit of elders covering up her crimes, recommending her to be a pioneer in the congregation and promoting her as an exemplary Jehovah’s Witness.  For years she had unlimited access to children as she was appointed to a position of trust by Jehovah’s Witnesses after knowing of the allegations of her children against her.  This is yet another example how Jehovah’s Witnesses create a “pedophile paradise” and sadly how reporters and the media protect exposure of their crimes against children.

Murfreesboro, TN mom sentenced to 40 years for raping own children

MURFREESBORO, TN (WKRN) – A mother accused of raping her own children will be behind bars until she's at least 90 years old.

The son of Angela Montgomery, 53, gave a strong victim impact statement in her sentencing hearing Wednesday.

Alan Von Webb's only wish was to make sure she never abuses anyone else.

Before Montgomery found out how many years she would be spending in jail, her son, who gave News 2 permission to use his name despite being the victim of a sexual assault, said the abuse at the hands of his own mother messed up his adult life.

“It's incredibly unfair and, in my opinion, evil,” Von Webb said.

He told News 2 his mother started abusing him around the age of five.

The two couldn't even look at each other in court.

“For the next 40 years, children out there are safe, and she can't get her hands on them, and that's all I really wanted,” Von Webb said.

Montgomery was convicted by a jury on six counts of rape of a child March 13.

Rutherford County Circuit Court Judge Royce Taylor sentenced Montgomery to 40 years in prison at 100 percent.

Her son said this day is his justice.

“A real mother wouldn't do that to her children,” Von Webb added.

Montgomery was given a chance to address the court but chose not to.

Her attorney Sean Williams said she has maintained she's not guilty, and none of the abuse happened; she claimed it was all made up.

“There's no happy ending to these cases,” said Rutherford County Assistant District Attorney Hugh Ammerman. “He'll always live with this and someone just got sentence to what could be basically the rest of her life in prison.”

Von Webb said his mother has shown no remorse.

“For her, it's a thrill, you know. It's like any criminal when they figure out the game and they can play it and win, they will do it as much as they can,” he explained.

Montgomery is expected to appeal as well as ask for new trial.

MURFREESBORO A woman convicted in March of raping her children more than a decade ago was sentenced Wednesday.

Judge Royce Taylor sentenced Angela Elizabeth Montgomery to 40 years in prison.

Montgomery was found guilty in early March on six counts of rape of a child. Montgomery was charged with raping her own two children multiple times when she lived in Rutherford County more than a decade ago.

Montgomery was indicted in December 2012 after Murfreesboro Police Department detectives were contacted about the alleged rapes and assaults.

She was initially charged with two counts of child rape by Murfreesboro Police Detective Wayne Lawson after her two children gave the detective "detailed statements" about rapes and sexual assaults they said they suffered at the hands of their mother when they lived in Murfreesboro more a decade ago.

She was charged with 20 counts of rape of a child, six counts of rape, 12 counts of incest and two counts of coercion of a witness, according to court records.

Montgomery was extradited from Oregon, where she now lives, to Murfreesboro where she posted a $10,000 bond.

In March, child-rape victim Alan Von Webb said he was relieved by the jury's decision.

Von Webb gave approval to the Daily News Journal to be publicly identified as a victim in the case. The newspaper typically does not name victims of sexual assault.

"She can't hurt anyone anymore," Von Webb told the Daily News Journal.

Montgomery sentenced to 40 years in child rape case

MURFREESBORO - A woman convicted on six counts of child rape of her oldest son dating back 15 years was sentenced to 40 years in prison Wednesday.

Angela Montgomery, 53, most recently of Portland, Ore., was convicted of forcing her son, Alan Von Webb, 25, formerly of Murfreesboro, to have sex with her multiple times during visitations from 1999 to 2003 at her former South Kings Highway home.

Circuit Court Judge Royce Taylor broke the six counts into two sets of three with each at 20 years to be served consecutively for a total of 40 years at 100 percent.

During a sentencing hearing, Von Webb testified he wanted Montgomery to be put away so she can't sexually abuse any other children.

Von Webb said the sexual abuse started when he was very young but as far as the court case was concerned, it took place when he was 9 to 13. He said he witnessed his mother also sexually abuse his younger sister and brother, in addition to nursing young children she kept even when she wasn't producing milk.

"She was the person who brought me into the world, but that's pretty much where it ended, because a real mother wouldn't do that to her children," Von Webb said afterward.

"It's nice to finally be over and done with it and know that for the next 40 years children out there are safe and she can't get her hands on them," he said.

Von Webb said it was difficult to lose a relationship with a parent, but he couldn't "sell out" his morals to keep his birth mother.

"I would rather lose a mother who's a predator and pedophile than sacrifice who I am just so I can hang out and have a superficial relationship with her," he said.

Assistant Public Defender Sean Williams argued against the state's contention that Montgomery showed no remorse, pointing out she maintained her innocence from the early 2000s when she and her former husband, Paul Von Webb, went through divorce.

"To this day, she's not going to offer remorse for things she said didn't happen," Williams said, asking Taylor to sentence her to the minimum of 15 years.

Assistant District Attorney Hugh Ammerman requested the judge sentence Montgomery to at least 25 years.

"I feel as if the truth is a powerful thing, and it often comes out in the end, even if it's been a long time coming. I think that's what happened here," Ammerman said. "Sadly, when you're a victim, you're going to be attacked in all likelihood if you want to stand up for yourself and let people know you've been injured in this way. It takes a lot of courage."

Paul Von Webb divorced Montgomery nearly two decades ago after having four children with her, Alan, 25, Michael Von Webb, 23, Jonathan Von Webb, 21, who has Down's syndrome, and Anna Von Webb.

Anna initially filed the charges against her mother in 2012, and Alan joined with her, but their case was severed so the state could concentrate on charges involving one victim, according to Von Webb.

Montgomery initially was indicted on 20 counts of child rape, six counts of rape and 12 counts of incest, in addition to two counts of coercing a witness to a crime, according to reports.

Murfreesboro Police Detective Wayne Lawson filed charges against her after two of the children told him about their mother raping and sexually assaulting them when they lived in Murfreesboro in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -


A Murfreesboro mother found guilty of raping her own children learned her fate on Wednesday.
Angela Montgomery will spend the next 40 years in prison.


Montgomery's son, Alan Vonn Webb, took the stand and was a key witness in her conviction.


"I want to see her placed somewhere she can never do that to children again, ever," he said. "Because it's not something you forget about. It's not something that's easy to overcome. It stays with you the rest of your life."


Pending any appeals, Montgomery would be 92 when she gets out of jail.

MURFREESBORO – A woman accused of raping her children while living in Murfreesboro more than a decade ago was convicted six counts of child rape Friday afternoon.

 

Angela Elizabeth Montgomery was found guilty on six counts of rape of a child. Montgomery was charged with raping her own two children multiple times when she lived in Rutherford County more than a decade ago.

 

Montgomery's bond was revoked and she was taken into custody.

 

"It's finally over and I can finally move on with my life," child rape victim Alan Von Webb said as he left Judge Royce Taylor's courtroom in tears.

 

Von Webb gave approval to the Daily News Journal to be publicly identified as a victim in the case. The newspaper typically does not name victims of sexual assault.

 

Von Webb, his girlfriend and his family cried as Judge Taylor read the jury's verdict which was returned around 3:30 p.m. Friday.

 

Members of the jury, who deliberated for more than six hours, also cried upon returning to Taylor's courtroom.

 

Montgomery was indicted in December 2012 after Murfreesboro Police Department detectives were contacted about the alleged rapes and assaults.

 

She was initially charged with two counts of child rape by Murfreesboro Police Det. Wayne Lawson after her two children gave the detective "detailed statements" about rapes and sexual assaults they said they suffered at the hands of their mother when they lived in Murfreesboro more a decade ago.

 

She was charged with 20 counts of rape of a child, six counts of rape, 12 counts of incest and two counts of coercion of a witness, according to court records.

 

Montgomery was extradited from Oregon, where she now lives, to Murfreesboro where she later posted a $10,000 bond.

 

Nine women and five men were selected Tuesday to serve on the jury. After the selection, jurors heard testimony from Von Webb, Montgomery's biological son.

 

He told jurors he was first sexually assaulted around the time he started learning about sex education in school.

 

"I thought it was normal," he said during his testimony on Tuesday. "All the time I thought it was normal until I talked to other kids."

 

Von Webb said the hours he waited for the verdict to be returned Friday felt like a continuous muscle cramp.

 

"I've been waiting for this day for a long time," he said. "I hope she knows she can't hurt anyone anymore."

Assistant District Attorney's Hugh Ammerman and Sarah Davis were the lead prosecutors in the case.

 

Ammerman said he was proud of Von Webb's courage.

 

"I'm glad (Von Webb) knows even though justice was delayed, it wasn't lost," Ammerman said. "I'm very proud of him."

 

Von Webb thanked all those involved in the case including the Rutherford County District Attorney's Office, MPD Detective Tommy Roberts, Detective Wayne Lawson and his friends and family that supported him throughout the process.

 

"I feel like this is a new beginning," Von Webb said with a big smile. "This is where I start over."

 

Montgomery's sentencing hearing is scheduled for May 6.
