NEWPORT NEWS - The name Elizabeth Coast made headlines here in Hampton Roads, after a confession that shocked many and came as the relief for a young man sitting in a prison cell.  

A year ago in Hampton, Coast recanted a story that sent Johnathan Montgomery to prison for more than four years for sex crimes he didn't commit.

In an exclusive interview with 13News Now, Coast said she would like to give Montgomery a face-to- face apology to describe how sorry she is for that lie.

"My heart and my prayers have been for him this whole time. I wish there was more that I could do to help him in this time of his life," she said.

Find out what Coast is doing now and her plans for the future tonight beginning on 13News Now at 5.
