Press Release

Robert Gallamore convicted of sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree

January 16, 2019

(Anchorage, Alaska) – After deliberation, an Anchorage jury found 51-year-old Robert Gallamore guilty of sexual abuse of a minor in the second degree yesterday.

Mr. Gallamore was tried before Superior Court Judge Michael Spaan in Anchorage.

According to Assistant District Attorney Daniel Shorey, who prosecuted the case, the evidence presented at trial established that in the early 2000’s Robert Gallamore engaged in sexual contact with the four-year-old victim. The victim, now an adult, disclosed the sexual contact to Oregon State Police in 2016. Anchorage Police Department was advised of the crime and Detective Jeff Bell took the lead in the investigation. The multi-jurisdictional investigation led to the indictment of Mr. Gallamore in 2016.

Judge Spaan scheduled sentencing for June 7, 2019. The law provides for a total sentence of up to 20 years, a fine of $100,000, or both. Under sentencing law, the actual sentence imposed is based on the seriousness of the offense and the criminal history of the defendant.

Pending sentencing, the court remanded Mr. Gallamore to the custody of the Department of Corrections.

Assistant District Attorney Shorey expressed his appreciation for the assistance Alaskan law enforcement received from the Oregon State Police.
