(Ind. No. 1328/06)

DECISION & ORDER

ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.

The nature and extent of cross-examination is subject to the sound discretion of the Trial Judge (see People v Schwartzman, 24 NY2d 241, 244, cert denied 396 US 846). Here, contrary to the defendant's contention, defense counsel's cross-examination of the complainant was not improperly curtailed or restricted (see People v Macuil, 67 AD3d 1025; People v Martin, 33 AD3d 1024).

Moreover, the Supreme Court properly precluded the defendant from displaying certain scarring on his legs to the jury (see generally People v Aska, 91 NY2d 979, 981; People v Bowen, 67 AD3d 1022; People v Martin, 27 AD3d 665).

RIVERA, J.P., DICKERSON, CHAMBERS and HALL, JJ., concur.
