People v. Sinha, 125

In a conviction of a teacher of several charges stemming from relationships she allegedly had with two minor students is affirmed, as the Appellate Division's reversal of the conviction for bribing a witness in finding a Brady violation does not require reversal of remaining counts. Here, the disclosure errors related only to the impeachment of one of the two alleged victims and the trial court carefully instructed the jury to decide each count, pertaining to each victim, separately, and there was strong evidence of defendant's guilt with respect to the remaining convictions that pertained only to the first victim who testified as to the history of the relationship and specific instances of sexual abuse.
