OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that error made by the prosecutor in eliciting testimony that the defendant had invoked his right to counsel during his interview with police was harmless: "[W]e agree with defendant that the prosecutor improperly elicited testimony that defendant invoked his right to counsel during his interview with the police. We nevertheless conclude that the error is harmless." Defendant was later granted a new trial on appeal to the New York Court of Appeals due the trial court's denial of defendant's for-cause challenge to a prospective juror who had personal and professional relationships with several of the witnesses expected to testify at defendant's trial. That court did not rule on alleged prosecutorial misconduct.
