(Ind. No. 1007/05)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant's contentions with respect to the comments made by the prosecutor during summation are unpreserved for appellate review since the defendant either failed to object to them or, after an objection was sustained, failed to either request further curative instructions or timely move for a mistrial based on those comments, and we decline to review them in the exercise of our interest of justice jurisdiction (see CPL 470.05; People v Balls, 69 NY2d 641, 642; People v Torres, 46 AD3d 925; People v Arnold, 170 AD2d 610).
The sentence imposed was not excessive (see People v Suitte, 90 AD2d 80, 85).
The defendant's contentions raised in his supplemental pro se brief are without merit.
SPOLZINO, J.P., DILLON, FLORIO and BELEN, JJ., concur.
