NEW YORK SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FOURTH DEPARTMENT
March 19, 2010
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
JOSEPH CALLOWAY, APPELLANT.
Appeal from a judgment of the Monroe County Court (Frank P. Geraci, Jr., J.), rendered December 13, 2006. The judgment convicted defendant, upon a non-jury verdict, of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree.
Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
As corrected through Wednesday, April 28, 2010
It is hereby ordered that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.
Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting him, following a non-jury trial, of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree (Penal Law § 265.02 [former (4)]). We reject the contention of defendant that County Court erred in refusing to suppress evidence obtained by the police during the search of the vehicle that he was driving. Contrary to defendant's contention, the People established at the suppression hearing that the owner's consent " 'was in fact voluntarily given, and not the result of duress or coercion, express or implied' by the actions of the law enforcement authorities" (People v Quagliata, 53 AD3d 670, 671 , lv denied 11 NY3d 834 , quoting Schneckloth v Bustamonte, 412 US 218, 248 ).
Present---Centra, J.P., Fahey, Carni, Green and Pine, JJ.
