OpinionThe New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, held that the prosecutor's misconduct did not deprive the defendant of a fair trial. "Although the prosecutor engaged in some instances of improper and inappropriate conduct, we conclude, upon our review of the record, that the Trial Judge's firm control over the trial obviated any prejudice to defendant that might have resulted from the prosecutor's misconduct [citations omitted]."
