Andrea Montgomery was found guilty as charged on each of the 6 charges of child rape of her biological son, Alan Von Webb, the oldest boy of four children. Today, many media people were there in the courtroom for the first time since the trial started.
The verdict came in about 3:30 p.m. which took time for the judge to read, etc., so I learned about it at 4 p.m. when the father of the four children, now young adults, called us. One of the children has Down's Syndrome, and it's difficult to imagine, but he also was raped since a child by his mother.
Angela Montgomery is a good-looking woman. Her photo in the paper when charged two years ago was terrible. When she testified she went into the JW mode of speaking - very controlled, articulate and she sounded as if she was highly educated. The defense brought up the JW religion many times and so did Angela Montgomery. She said her former husband was behind all the charges. She never raped her son. What happened next would make for an amazing movie that is if you want to go to an X-rated one.
