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


March 20, 2012

7143 MATTER OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, PETITIONER-RESPONDENT,
v.
BOBBY POWELL, RESPONDENT-APPELLANT.

Matter of Matter of State of New York v Powell

Decided on March 20, 2012

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.

Mazzarelli, J.P., Saxe, Renwick, Richter, Abdus-Salaam, JJ.

Order, Supreme Court, New York County (Daniel FitzGerald, J.), entered on or about October 22, 2010, which, in a proceeding pursuant to Mental Hygiene Law article 10, upon a jury finding of mental abnormality, committed respondent to a secure treatment facility, and order, same court and Justice, entered on or about June 17, 2011, denying respondent's motion for a new trial in the interests of justice, unanimously affirmed, without costs.

Respondent was not deprived of due process, and a new trial is not warranted in the interests of justice. Although petitioner's psychologist provided erroneous testimony regarding respondent's score on the Static--99 risk assessment instrument, there was other overwhelming evidence of mental abnormality presented at trial, including the admission of respondent's own expert that respondent was predisposed to commit sex offenses.

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

ENTERED: MARCH 20, 2012
