DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
Contrary to the defendant's contention, the trial court properly denied his challenge for cause to a prospective juror. The record does not support a finding that the prospective juror had an actual bias or otherwise possessed a "state of mind that [was] likely to preclude [her] from rendering an impartial verdict based upon the evidence adduced at the trial" (CPL 270.20[b]; see People v Hernandez, 222 AD2d 696, 696-697; People v Archer, 210 AD2d 241, 241-242).
COVELLO, J.P., SANTUCCI, ANGIOLILLO and DICKERSON, JJ., concur.
