OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the prosecutor improperly elicited testimony that the defendant was arrested following the detective's interview with the nontestifying codefendant and the prosecutor improperly elicited testimony from the detective. As a result, the court reversed the conviction. "The prosecutor . . . improperly elicited testimony during direct examination that the defendant was arrested following a detective's interview with Redd, a nontestifying codefendant, which implied that Redd implicated the defendant in the robbery [citations omitted]. In addition, the prosecutor improperly elicited testimony from the detective that the defendant agreed to make a statement after she told him that she had statements from the two codefendants and showed him the statement of Wellington, also a nontestifying codefendant, who was arrested with him [citations omitted]."
