People State New York v. Wilfredo Roldos Supreme Court of New York read online review & book description:

[112 A.D.2d 388 Page 388] While the evidence adduced at trial supports the jury's verdict, we are compelled to reverse the judgment of conviction because of our concern that the defendant was deprived of a fair trial. Although not objected to, the trial court's charge on the presumption of innocence did not adequately convey to the jury the import and significance of this fundamental safeguard (1 CJI (NY) 6.10 at 246). Moreover, the trial court failed to charge the jury that every element of the crimes with which the defendant had been charged were required to be established beyond a reasonable doubt (CPL 70.20; People v Newman, 46 N.Y.2d 126; People v Coleman, 70 A.D.2d 600). Finally, a dialogue continuing throughout the trial evidenced great hostility between the Trial Judge and defense counsel which may well have influenced the jury in its deliberations to defendant's detriment.
