OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the prosecutor's improper gender stereotyping did not deprive the defendant of a fair trial. "[A]lthough some of the prosecutor's remarks . . . improperly included gender stereotyping, the improper comments were not so flagrant or pervasive in the context of the entire summation as to deprive the defendant of a fair trial [citations omitted]. . . . Further, any prejudice resulting from the prosecutor's comments that the defendant's alibi defense was not raised in a timely manner was alleviated by the trial court's instructions to the jury that the defendant served a notice of alibi and presented her defense in a timely manner [citation omitted]."
