Decided on July 7, 2011
PRESENT: IANNACCI, J.P., NICOLAI and MOLIA, JJ
ORDERED that the judgment of conviction is affirmed.
After a non-jury trial, defendant was convicted of passing a stopped school bus (Vehicle and Traffic Law § 1174 [a]). Defendant's claim, that the simplified traffic information was jurisdictionally defective because it alleged an offense which occurred outside the boundary of the Village of Great Neck Estates and beyond the scope of employment of the Village of Great Neck Estate's police officer who charged defendant with the traffic infraction (CPL 20.50 ; see also CPL 100.55 ), is not preserved for appellate review (CPL 470.05 ; People v Schonfeld, 26 Misc 3d 74, 75 [App Term, 9th & 10th Jud Dists 2009]). In the circumstances presented, we decline to address the issue in the interest of justice.
Accordingly, the judgment of conviction is affirmed.
Iannacci, J.P., Nicolai and Molia, JJ., concur. Decision
