SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT
June 2, 1969
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
DAVID RODRIGUEZ, APPELLANT
Appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Kings County, rendered March 26, 1968, convicting defendant of selling narcotics, as a felony (2 counts), possession of narcotics with intent to sell, as a felony (2 counts), and possession of narcotics, as a misdemeanor (2 counts), upon a jury verdict, and imposing sentence.
Beldock, P. J., Christ, Brennan, Rabin and Hopkins, JJ., concur.
Judgment affirmed. The proof clearly established defendant's guilt. While it was error for the court not to admit Marcos Guadalupe's memo book in evidence (see CPLR 4518), it is our opinion that the error may be disregarded under section 542 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. The entries made in the book had no more probative value than Guadalupe's oral testimony and would not have added any support to defendant's alibi defense. We have examined defendant's other contentions and find no grounds therein for disturbing the judgment.
