HAMPTON-- Johnathon Montgomery spent Thanksgiving at home with family for the first time in four years.

His father, Dave Montgomery, sent WVEC.com these photos of Montgomery and his family. In an e-mail sent to 13News he said, 'John carved the turkey this year.'

'He also is getting to do things that he hasn't been able to do like cook his own food,'his father added.

26-year-old Montgomery was wrongfully accused of sexual assault in 2008. His accuser later admitted that she made up the story.

Governor Bob McDonnell pardoned Montgomery last Tuesday and ordered an immediate release from prison.
