OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the prosecutor's improper suggestion to the grand jury, that defendant participated in other crimes, did not so impair the integrity of the proceedings as to require a dismissal of the indictment. "[A]lthough the prosecutor improperly suggested that the defendant participated in other crimes, the grand jury proceeding did not fail to conform to the requirements of CPL article 190 to such a degree that the integrity thereof was impaired and, in view of the sufficiency of the independent, admissible proof which supported the indictment, no prejudice to the defendant could have resulted from the improperly elicited testimony and comments . . ."
