G&A defense attorney Matthew Galluzzo recently earned a stunning trial
acquittal in a federal sexual abuse case that had been extensively covered
in the press. The client, charged with one count each of sexual abuse
on an airplane (18 U.S.C. 2244(b)) and assault on an airplane (18 U.S.C.
113(a)(5)), went to trial in Brooklyn federal court (the Eastern District
of New York) before Judge Pamela Chen. The jury deliberated about a day
and acquitted the client of all charges, accepting his defense that his
touching of the complainant had been an involuntary act committed while
asleep. Five eyewitnesses testified for the prosecution.
