OpinionThe Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the defense counsel's failure to object to multiple instances of alleged prosecutorial misconduct did not prejudice the defendant. "While we agree with defendant that the prosecutor improperly denigrated the defense, that misconduct was not so egregious as to deprive defendant of a fair trial [citation omitted, and defense counsel's failure to object to those comments did not deprive defendant of effective assistance of counsel [citations omitted]."
