Decided on September 13, 2012
PRESENT: LaCAVA, J.P., NICOLAI and LaSALLE, JJ
The order granted defendant's motion to dismiss the accusatory instrument.
ORDERED that the order is reversed, on the law, defendant's motion to dismiss the accusatory instrument is denied, and the matter is remitted to the District Court for all further proceedings.
The People charged defendant in an information with violating Vehicle and Traffic Law § 1192 (3). The District Court granted defendant's motion to dismiss the information on the ground that defendant's admission was the only proof of the element of operation alleged therein and the factual allegations were insufficient to satisfy the corroboration requirement of CPL 60.50. In People v Suber ( NY3d , 2012 NY Slip Op 03573 [May 8, 2012]), the Court of Appeals held that CPL 60.50 is inapplicable to misdemeanor informations.
Accordingly, the order is reversed, defendant's motion to dismiss the information is denied, and the matter is remitted to the District Court for all further proceedings.
LaCava, J.P., Nicolai and LaSalle, JJ., concur. Decision Date: September 13, 2012
