The PEOPLE of the State of New York, Respondent, v. Timothy HARRELL, also known as Tim Herrera, Defendant-Appellant.
Judgment, Supreme Court, New York County (Eduardo Padro, J.), rendered October 3, 2006, convicting defendant, after a jury trial, of criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree, and sentencing him, as a second felony drug offender whose prior felony conviction was a violent felony, to a term of 6 years, unanimously reversed, on the law, and the matter remanded for a new trial.
In People v. De Los Santos, 50 A.D.3d 455, 854 N.Y.S.2d 647 , this Court reversed the codefendant's conviction on the ground that the trial court improperly denied a challenge for cause to a prospective juror who had expressed doubt about his ability to be impartial. We see no reason to reach a different result with regard to defendant, who was similarly situated to the codefendant in all respects. We find it unnecessary to reach any other issue.
