OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the defense counsel did not render ineffective assistance for failing to object to improper remarks by the prosecutor. "Although defense counsel should have objected to the remarks that defendant now contends constituted an improper 'safe streets' argument [citation omitted], it cannot be said that, viewing counsel's representation in its totality, such error deprived defendant of meaningful representation."
