The People of the State of New York v. Oswaldo Serrata

New York Supreme and/or Appellate Courts Appellate Division, First Department


March 6, 2012

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK,
RESPONDENT,
v.
OSWALDO SERRATA, ETC.,
DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.

People v Serrata

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.

Decided on March 6, 2012

Mazzarelli, J.P., Friedman, Acosta, Freedman, Abdus-Salaam, JJ.

Judgment, Supreme Court, New York County (Juan M. Merchan, J.), rendered June 30, 2009, as amended December 21, 2009, convicting defendant, after a jury trial, of burglary in the first degree, assault in the third degree, and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (two counts), and sentencing him to an aggregate term of five years, unanimously affirmed.

The verdict was not against the weight of the evidence (see People v Danielson, 9 NY3d 342, 348 [2007]). There is no basis for disturbing the jury's credibility determinations The fact that the jury acquitted defendant of some counts does not warrant a different result (see People v Rayam, 94 NY2d 557 [2000]).

The victim's testimony supported the conclusions that defendant unlawfully entered the victim's building by forcing open a door, and that defendant did so with intent to commit an assault. The credible evidence also disproved beyond a reasonable doubt defendant's justification defense to the assault charge.

THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.

ENTERED: MARCH 6, 2012
