OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the defendant was "not denied due process of law" due to prosecutor misconduct. "[T]he prosecutor improperly expressed his personal opinion concerning defendant's guilt [citation omitted] and referred to defendant as a 'convicted criminal'. We have repeatedly admonished prosecutors not to engage in such conduct. The prosecutor's conduct was 'unseemly and unprofessional in the extreme' [citations omitted] and does not comport with 'the obligations of the sensitive role [that a prosecutor] plays' [citations omitted]."
