(Ind. No. 1987/06)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment and the resentence are affirmed.
In fulfilling our responsibility to conduct an independent review of the weight of the evidence (see CPL 470.15; People v Danielson, 9 NY3d 342), we nevertheless accord great deference to the jury's opportunity to view the witnesses, hear the testimony, and observe demeanor (see People v Mateo, 2 NY3d 383, 410, cert denied 542 US 946; People v Bleakley, 69 NY2d 490, 495). Upon reviewing the record here, we are satisfied that the verdict of guilt was not against the weight of the evidence (see People v Romero, 7 NY3d 633).
The defendant's remaining contentions are unpreserved for appellate review and, in any event, are without merit.
MASTRO, J.P., RIVERA, DICKERSON and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
