SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK
Appellate Division, Fourth Judicial Department

KA 09-02479
PRESENT: SCUDDER, P.J., PERADOTTO, LINDLEY, VALENTINO, AND MARTOCHE, JJ.
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
V MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
DWIGHT R. DELEE, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.

http://www.nycourts.gov/courts/ad4/Clerk/Deci...

Appeal from a judgment of the Onondaga County Court (William D.
Walsh, J.), rendered August 18, 2009. The judgment convicted defendant,
upon a jury verdict, of manslaughter in the first degree as a hate crime
and criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree.
It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is modified
on the law by reversing that part convicting defendant of manslaughter
in the first degree as a hate crime (Penal Law 125.20 [1]; 485.05 [1]
[a]) and dismissing count one of the indictment and as modified the
judgment is affirmed.
Memorandum: On appeal from a judgment convicting him following a
jury trial of manslaughter in the first degree as a hate crime (Penal
Law 125.20 [1]; 485.05 [1][a]) and criminal possession of a weapon
in the third degree ( 265.02 [1]), defendant contends that the verdict
is inconsistent insofar as the jury convicted him of manslaughter in the
first degree as a hate crime but acquitted him of manslaughter in the
first degree ( 125.20 [1]). We agree with that contention and
therefore modify the judgment accordingly.
