BodyAppeals court
OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the prosecutor's improper cross-examination of the defendant did not warrant a new trial, reversing the trial court's setting aside of the verdict. "The motion court also set aside the verdict on the ground that the prosecutor improperly cross-examined defendant about an Internet statement he made, in which defendant expressed an anti-police and anti-authority bias. However, the record fails to support the court's finding that defendant preserved this issue by way of a specific objection. . . .While the prosecutor failed to read the complete statement, defense counsel could have provided the full context by introducing the remainder of the statement [citations omitted], but failed to do so."
