Galluzzo & Johnson criminal defense lawyer recognized as expert rape investigator by US Government and hired for assignment in South Africa

The Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo, PLLC Team

Matthew Galluzzo, a criminal defense lawyer, was recently recruited and hired by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for a selective and important assignment in South Africa. South Africa has a serious problem with rape; indeed, a recent and shocking survey revealed that one in three South African women reported having been raped in the past year. The situation is so dire that the South African government appealed to foreign experts to help them develop a new training program for their prosecutors and law enforcement agents. In response to this need, USAID recruited Matthew Galluzzo, a former prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s elite Sex Crimes Unit, to travel to South Africa and conduct seminars for South African prosecutors on modern and proper techniques for investigating rape allegations. He will spend time in both Cape Town and Johannesburg per this assignment.

As a former prosecutor, Mr. Galluzzo understands the importance of eradicating this terrible plague that South Africa is suffering from. However, as a criminal defense attorney, he is also passionate about the importance of rape investigations being done in a fair and thorough manner so as to avoid false accusations. Tragically, false accusations do happen, and oftentimes, a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney is a person’s only hope for proving their innocence. If you believe that you or a loved one have been falsely accused of rape or a sexual assault, you should strongly consider contacting him to represent you.
