An article about Matthew Galluzzo's recent victory in a first-degree
rape trial in Delaware County, New York, was featured in the most recent
issue of Atticus magazine, the leading New York state criminal defense
attorney publication. After overturning his client's conviction on
appeal (the client had been represented by another attorney when he was
originally convicted), Mr. Galluzzo proceeded to trial in October 2013.
The prosecution presented DNA evidence and the testimony of two prompt-outcry
witnesses, the complaining witness, and a cooperating co-defendant, among
other evidence. Nevertheless, the defendant was acquitted of all charges
after the jury deliberated for less than an hour.
Atticus magazine routinely publishes articles about noteworthy and remarkable
victories by members of the New York state criminal defense bar. This
is the second issue in a row in which one of Mr. Galluzzo's victories
has been featured. (See here for the prior article in the summer edition 2013).
