OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the guilty verdict was not against the weight of the evidence. "Of defendant's claims of prosecutorial misconduct, the only one that is arguably preserved relates to the prosecutor's brief summation remark that defendant and his codefendant 'know' they are guilty. The court's curative instruction, which the jury is presumed to have followed[citation omitted] was sufficient to prevent any prejudice, and the court properly exercised its discretion in declining to declare a mistrial or give an additional curative instruction."
