SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK APPELLATE DIVISION SECOND JUDICIAL DEPARTMENT
February 2, 2010
THE PEOPLE, ETC., RESPONDENT,
JOSE GARCIA, APPELLANT.
Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Kings County (Ingram, J.), rendered January 27, 2006, convicting him of murder in the second degree, upon a jury verdict, and imposing sentence. The appeal brings up for review the denial, after a hearing, of that branch of the defendant's omnibus motion which was to suppress his statements to law enforcement officials.

(Ind. No. 473/04)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
Contrary to the defendant's contention, he was not deprived of the effective assistance of counsel (see Strickland v Washington, 466 US 668, 687; People v Taylor, 1 NY3d 174, 176).
The defendant's contention that the Supreme Court failed to comply with CPL 710.40(3) does not require reversal (cf. People v Blowe, 130 AD2d 668, 669-670).
The defendant's remaining contention is without merit.
RIVERA, J.P., LEVENTHAL, HALL and SGROI, JJ., concur.
