OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the error resulting from the prosecutor's arguments during summation was harmless. "While the prosecutor improperly cited expert testimony to suggest that the victim's change in behavior was indicative of her having been abused, we find no basis to disturb the jury's determination regarding the credibility of the victim's strong testimony, and find the error to be harmless in any event [citations omitted]."
