(Ind. No. 6879/04)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant's contention that the Supreme Court erred in its questioning of a defense witness as to a prior conviction is unpreserved for appellate review (see CPL 470.05; People v Charleston, 56 NY2d 886, 887; People v Negron, 41 AD3d 865, 865). In any event, this contention is without merit. The court did not take an adversarial position or act in a manner which gave the jury the impression that the court had an opinion as to the witness's credibility (see People v Moulton, 43 NY2d 944, 945; cf. People v Melendez, 227 AD2d 646).
The defendant's remaining contentions are without merit.
RIVERA, J.P., MILLER, CARNI and McCARTHY, JJ., concur.
