Prosecutors said Coast made up the sexual assault after her parents caught her looking at pornographic websites in 2007 when she was 17.
She then allegedly made up a story of prior sexual abuse to explain her behavior.And, unfortunately for a friend, named him. He did four years behind bars...
Mr Montgomery, who lost more than 100lb during his time in prison, was given a conditional pardon by Virginia governor Bob McDonnell.
He had always maintained his innocence throughout his incarceration.
Mr Montgomery was freed in time to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family at his father's home in Vale, North Carolina.Lucky, lucky man...
His accuser has now recanted her story and has been charged with perjury.I hope the penalty for perjury is at least four years.
