OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the alleged instances of prosecutorial misconduct during summation were deemed to have been corrected to the defendant's satisfaction when several of the defendant's objections were sustained and the court issued curative instructions. "With respect to the remaining instances of alleged misconduct, we agree with defendant that, in two of those instances, the prosecutor improperly vouched for the credibility of one of the witnesses and denigrated the defense [citations omitted]. Although such misconduct is not to be condoned, we nevertheless conclude that it was not so egregious as to deny defendant a fair trial [citations omitted]."
