Judge dismisses charges against former Ooltewah coach

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) Judge Don Poole on Friday dismissed the charges against former Ooltewah basketball coach Andre “Tank” Montgomery.

He was charged with failing to report the sexual assault involving members of the basketball team.

But Montgomery’s attorney argued that the reporting statute was too vague.

The issue came down to what constitutes child sexual abuse under the reporting law, specifically what age.

He ruled the law only applies to 13 and under.

In this case, the victim was older.

So he dismissed the indictment against coach Montgomery.
