People v. Fisher, 56

Convictions for various sex offenses are set aside and a new trial ordered, where defense counsel rendered ineffective assistance of counsel by failing to object to the prosecutor's egregiously improper departures during summation, particularly in the highly charged, potentially outcome determinative context in which they occurred, and there was no evident strategic basis for counsel's failure to object.
