The People of the State of New York v. Darryl Reaves

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


January 24, 2013

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK,
RESPONDENT,
v.
DARRYL REAVES,
DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.

People v Reaves

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 January 24, 2013

Tom, J.P., Saxe, Moskowitz, Abdus-Salaam, Gische, JJ.

Judgment, Supreme Court, New York County (Herbert J. Adlerberg, J.H.O.), rendered October 4, 2010, convicting defendant, after a non-jury trial, of menacing in the third degree, and sentencing him to a term of one year of probation, unanimously affirmed.

Defendant's legal sufficiency claim is unpreserved and we decline to review it in the interest of justice. As an alternative holding, we reject it on the merits. We also find that the verdict was not against the weight of the evidence (see People v Danielson, 9 NY3d 342, 348-349 [2007]). There is no basis for disturbing the court's credibility determinations. Given the surrounding circumstances, defendant's display of a knife constituted "physical menace" that was intended to intimidate the victim (see Penal Law § 120.15).

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

ENTERED: JANUARY 24, 2013
