v.
JASPER L. CAMPBELL, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.

PETER J. PULLANO, ROCHESTER, FOR DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.

SANDRA DOORLEY, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, ROCHESTER (NANCY GILLIGAN OF COUNSEL), FOR RESPONDENT.

PRESENT: SMITH, J.P., CARNI, SCONIERS, AND VALENTINO, JJ.

It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.

Memorandum: Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting him following a nonjury trial of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree (Penal Law § 265.03 [3]). Defendant's conviction arose out of the seizure by the police of a handgun from the floor of a vehicle in which defendant was a passenger. Viewing the evidence in light of the elements of the crime in this nonjury trial (see People v Danielson, 9 N.Y.3d 343, 349), we conclude that "the verdict, based on the applicability of the automobile presumption..., is not against the weight of the evidence" (People v Wilburn, 50 A.D.3d 1617, 1618, lv denied 11 N.Y.3d 742; see People v Dunnigan, 1 A.D.3d 930, 931-932, lv denied 1 N.Y.3d 627; People v Tutt, 194 A.D.2d 575, 575-576, lv denied 82 N.Y.2d 760; see generally People v Bleakley, 69 N.Y.2d 490, 495). We further conclude that the sentence is not unduly harsh or severe.
