Defendant Sentenced for Burglary,
Sexual Assault of Sacramento Couple

DATE:  March 13, 2017

CASE:  Anthony Galloway (Case #15F02903)

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Maria Wilson, Adult Sexual Assault Prosecution Unit

The Honorable Marjorie Koller sentenced Anthony Galloway to 57 years to life in prison.  On January 24, 2017, a jury convicted Galloway of first-degree burglary, assault with intent to rape during the course of the burglary, and two counts of forcible oral copulation with the allegations that Galloway committed the crime during the commission of the burglary and personally used a deadly weapon found true on both counts.

In the early morning hours of May 12, 2015, a couple was asleep when Galloway entered their bedroom through a window.  With a hammer in his hand, Galloway forced the male victim to perform sexual acts on his girlfriend.  Galloway then took off his shirt, pulled the female victim’s hair and stated he was going to rape her.  The male victim tried to save his girlfriend and charged at Galloway, but Galloway quickly placed the male victim in a choke hold.   During the scuffle, the female victim screamed for help from a bedroom window.  Galloway fled the residence, but was apprehended by police in a neighboring backyard.
