THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
HAYNES JACOB, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
Judgment, Supreme Court, Bronx County (Michael Gross, J.), rendered March 19, 2007, convicting defendant, after a jury trial, of robbery in the second degree, and sentencing him to a term of 4 years, unanimously affirmed.
Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
Gonzalez, P.J., Saxe, Moskowitz, Abdus-Salaam, RomÁn, JJ.
The verdict was not against the weight of the evidence (see People v Danielson, 9 NY3d 342, 348-349 ). There is no basis for disturbing the jury's determinations concerning identification and credibility. The evidence, viewed as a whole, warrants the conclusion that the victim was familiar with defendant's appearance as the result of many encounters with him over a period of years, and we reject defendant's arguments to the contrary.
We perceive no basis for reducing the sentence.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
