OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that defendant was not denied a fair trial by alleged prosecutorial misconduct: "We conclude that, although the prosecutor engaged in misconduct in seeking to impeach defendant by questioning him on cross-examination concerning his failure to support an out-of-wedlock child who was “on welfare” (citation omitted), that misconduct did not deny defendant a fair trial (citation omitted). The other alleged instances of prosecutorial misconduct are not preserved for our review . . . and we decline to exercise our power to review them as a matter of discretion in the interest of justice (citation omitted)."
