The verdict was based on legally sufficient evidence and was not against the weight of the evidence. There is no basis for disturbing the jury's determinations concerning credibility. The evidence established that defendant was not an agent of the buyer (see generally People v Herring, 83 NY2d 780 ), but instead was a participant in a drug-selling operation, acting as a steerer, salesperson and screener.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
