OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the prosecutor's act of improperly vouching for credibility of witness was not so egregious as to deprive defendant of a fair trial: "Turning to the assertion of prosecutorial misconduct, the People concede that the Assistant District Attorney erred when he personally vouched for the credibility of one witness [citation omitted]. However, we do not find that either this incident or the other minor comments noted by defendant to be so egregious as to deprive defendant of a fair trial [citation omitted] when the remainder of the People's conduct was appropriate and the evidence against defendant overwhelming."
