OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the prosecutor's repeated improper questioning of the defendant regarding an uncharged burglary did not merit grant of mistrial: "[A]lthough the court admonished the prosecutor after he first questioned defendant concerning the uncharged burglary, the prosecutor nevertheless asked defendant a second question concerning the uncharged crime. The court thereupon excused the jury, again admonished the prosecutor, and issued a curative instruction to the jury when it returned to the courtroom. Affording the appropriate deference to the court's decision whether to grant a mistrial (citation omitted), we conclude that the court properly denied defendant's motion for a mistrial."
