OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the prosecutor's improper comments during summation did not deprive the defendant of a fair trial: "We reject defendant's remaining objections to the prosecutor's summation, except his descriptions of defendant as 'disgusting,' 'vile' and 'a pedophile,' which were clearly unwarranted. However, even when considered cumulatively, in our view these errors 'were not so egregious, when viewed in the context of the whole summation, as to warrant a new trial . . ."
