|First Appearance||Comic Perversion|
Josh Galloway is a popular comedian who raped several collage students.
When telling jokes on stage, Galloway would often make jokes about rape, much to the criticisms of some. Whenever he preformed at a collage, he would bring drunk fans back to his hotel and if the women declined to have sex he would rape them, the next day he would give them gift baskets to convince them to not report the assault, two of the young women he raped were Carly Rydell and Audrey Truffaut. When he preformed for the students of Tompkins Square University and made jokes about rape Renee Clark, a former rape victim who leads a support group for women who have been raped, protests about how offensive his jokes are, to which Galloway jokes that it would be funny if she got gang raped, after she leaves Clark is almost assaulted by fellow classmates who are fans of Galloway.
After the would-be assailants are arrested, Sergeant Olivia Benson and detective Nick Amaro go to question Galloway for inciting an attempted rape but he claims that his jokes are not to facilitate rape and invites them to his next show. When Benson, Brian Cassidy, Odafin Tutuola and Amanda Rollins attend his next show, they hear how Galloway jokes about rape, much to there disgust, and leave but as they leave, Rydell tells the detective about how Galloway raped her in the past. After interviewing Truffaut, the SVU detectives happily arrest Galloway in the hotel lobby and while being arrested Galloway claims that he is being persecuted for his jokes. Outside the courthouse Galloway and his attorney Renee Clark claim that he respects women and that the state only trying to punish him for the jokes he tells.
In court when Rydell testifies about how Galloway raped her, Clark tries to claim that she is lying out of embarrassment and later on that day, Galloway shows a video on the internet of Rydell being drunk and acting promiscuous to claim that she committed perjury. When Galloway takes the stand he claims that he did not rape Rydell and when he makes jokes during A.D.A. Rafael Barba's cross examination he claims that he is an artist and that the only reason he is on trial is for the jokes he tells. While he was drinking at a bar, Clark disguises herself to entrap him. After flirting in the bar they go up to Galloway's room where he tries to rape Clark but she manages to fight him off and captures the assault on her video eyeglasses. When Barba shows Galloway and Clark the video, he agrees to take a plea of sexual assault in which he would be registered as a sex offender and put on probation, Rydell also plans to sue Galloway for raping her.
