NATHAN PERRY, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
Appeal from judgment, Supreme Court, Bronx County (Colleen D.

Decided on January 3, 2013
Gonzalez, P.J., Friedman, Saxe, Richter, Abdus-Salaam, JJ.
The record supports the inference that some of the material redacted from the arresting officer's memo book, which was turned over to the defense, constituted Rosario material (People v Rosario, 9 NY2d 286 , cert denied 368 US 866 ; see also CPL 240.45) and was not otherwise protected from disclosure. Defendant is therefore entitled to an in camera review of the unredacted memo book to determine whether any of the deleted portions of the officer's notes constituted Rosario material and, if so, whether their nondisclosure caused defendant any prejudice (cf. People v Smith, 33 AD3d 462, 464 [1st Dept 2006], lv denied 8 NY3d 849 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
