OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, did not reverse defendant's conviction despite prosecutor misconduct: "Although the prosecutor improperly suggested to the jury that defendant had a reason to lie and had tailored his trial testimony to fit the prosecution's proof [citations omitted], those isolated instances of prosecutorial misconduct did not cause 'such substantial prejudice to the defendant that he has been denied due process of law' [citations omitted]."
