"I would like to thank the court, the FBI and the US Attorney's office for their swift and efficient dealings in connection with this case," John said in a statement (via E! News).

"I am shocked and perplexed how individuals could fabricate so many false stories in an effort to defend a crime," he said. "I agreed to be a witness for a federal criminal prosecution and endured countless false accusations about my behavior and appropriateness."

John was reportedly accused of going using cocaine with strippers and trying to have sex with Coss, 17 at the time, in a hot tub.

"The allegations made regarding an inappropriate relationship are completely untrue," he added. "These slanderous allegations to smear my reputation were part of their defense to redirect attention away from the federal crime of extortion. There was no hot tub, no drugs, no nudity and nothing sexual in nature involved in my friendship with this woman. They lied about everything from a pregnancy to compromising photos."
