THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT, v. PATRICK J. ELLIOTT, DEFENDANT–APPELLANT.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.
Memorandum: Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting him after a jury trial of rape in the second degree (Penal Law § 130.30 ) and endangering the welfare of a child (§ 260.10 ). Contrary to his sole contention on appeal, viewing the evidence in light of the elements of the crimes as charged to the jury (see People v. Danielson, 9 NY3d 342, 349), we conclude that the verdict is not against the weight of the evidence (see generally People v. Bleakley, 69 N.Y.2d 490, 495). The 14–year–old victim testified that defendant had sex with her, and the forensic evidence, although inconclusive, was not inconsistent with her testimony.
