Mother Charged With Child Rape More Than 10 Years Later

Posted: Updated:

RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. – A woman has been brought back to the mid-state to face child rape charges nearly a decade after the alleged crimes occurred.

On Wednesday morning, 50-year-old Angela Montgomery was booked into the Rutherford County jail on two counts of child rape.

Her now 15-year-old daughter and 21-year-old son, who live in Rutherford County, recently came forward with strong accusations that their mother molested them a decade ago.

Both children gave very detailed statements to sex crimes detectives that were allegedly convincing enough to lead to the arrest of their mother all these years later.

She had been living in Portland, Oregon when she was arrested. More charges could be pending.

The statute of limitations on child rape is more than two decades. The case, based on the children's statements, will be presented to a grand jury.
