Sam Stockard of the Murfreesboro Post (Tennessee) reported on February 18, 2016 that Angela Montgomery, formerly of Tennessee and most recently of Oregon, has been denied a new trial.
The now infamous Jehovah’s Witness mother was convicted of molesting her own children and performing questionable sexually related acts on other non-related minors. Montgomery was sentenced to 40 years in prison after her trial in March 2015.
Circuit Court Judge Royce Taylor denied Montgomery’s requests for acquittal and a new trial. She faces 40 years in prison for raping her oldest son when he was a child.
Montgomery, most recently of Portland, OR, was convicted in 2015 of forcing her son, Alan Von Webb, formerly of Murfreesboro, to have sex with her multiple times during visitations from 1999 to 2003 in Tennessee.
Convicted on six counts of child rape, Montgomery was sentenced to 40 years in state prison. Judge Taylor broke the six counts into two sets of three with each at 20 years to be served consecutively 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.”
During the court hearings, Von Webb testified that he was sexually abused when he was very young. The evidence presented in court focused on acts that took place when he was 9 to 13. He said he saw his mother also sexually abusing his younger sister and brother. He also testified that she also nursed non-related young children she kept – even when she wasn’t producing milk.
Sam Stockard quoted Von Webb shortly after the trial: “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.”
