Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Second Department, New York.

Nov. 12, 2014.

994 N.Y.S.2d 684

Joseph F. DeFelice, Kew Gardens, N.Y., for appellant.

Richard A. Brown, District Attorney, Kew Gardens, N.Y. (John M. Castellano and Daniel Bresnahan of counsel), for respondent.



Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Queens County (Roman, J.), rendered October 23, 2006, convicting him of grand larceny in the fourth degree and criminal possession of stolen property in the fifth degree (two counts), upon a jury verdict, and imposing sentence.

Settles, 28 A.D.3d 591, 591, 813 N.Y.S.2d 501 ). In any event, contrary to the defendant's contention, the Supreme Court conducted a reasonably thorough inquiry into the juror's unavailability and providently exercised its discretion in replacing the juror after determining that the juror would not appear within the two-hour time period set forth in CPL 270.35(2) (see People v. Jeanty, 94 N.Y.2d 507, 706 N.Y.S.2d 683, 727 N.E.2d 1237 ). The defendant's constitutional claim on this...
