OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the defendant was not deprived of a fair trial by prosecutorial misconduct on redirect examination of the detective witness and in summation. "While one question asked by the prosecutor during redirect examination of a detective, and some of the prosecutor's comments in summation, were improper, the prosecutor's misstatements were not so egregious or pervasive as to deprive the defendant of a fair trial, and, in the instances where the defendant objected, the trial court took prompt and appropriate curative action [citations omitted]."
