SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT
June 23, 1969
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
TYRONE THORNTON, APPELLANT
Appeal by defendant from a judgment of the County Court, Nassau County, rendered February 29, 1968, convicting him of grand larceny in the first degree and two counts of burglary in the third degree, upon a jury verdict, and imposing concurrent sentences of 2 1/2 to 5 years on each count.
Christ, Acting P. J., Benjamin, Munder, Martuscello and Kleinfeld, JJ., concur.
While there may have been technical error with respect to testimony at the trial concerning a brief, minor admission by defendant which was not adduced at the pretrial Huntley hearing on the admissibility of his full oral and written confession, we find, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the error was not materially prejudicial and could not have affected the result (Code Crim. Pro., § 542; cf. Chapman v. California, 386 U.S. 18
, 23-24; Frazier v. Cupp U.S. ; People v. Padgett, 32 A.D.2d 672).
