March 15, 1999
Appeal from the Supreme Court, Kings County (Vaughan, J.).
Ordered that the judgment is affirmed
The court did not err in refusing to charge the jury on a justification defense because no reasonable view of the evidence supported such a defense ( see, People v. Butts, 72 N.Y.2d 746; People v. Watts, 57 N.Y.2d 299).
The defendant's contention that the trial court erred by not charging the jury with respect to assault in the third degree (Penal Law § 120.00) as a lesser included offense is without merit. The evidence adduced at trial established that the defendant acted intentionally. There was no reasonable view of the evidence from which the jury could have found that the defendant acted recklessly when she slashed the complainant's face and shoulder with a broken glass bottle. Thus, the trial court correctly declined to charge assault in the third degree (Penal Law § 120.00) as a lesser included offense ( see, People v. Zayas, 140 A.D.2d 395; see generally, People v. Van Norstrand, 85 N.Y.2d 131; People v. Glover, 57 N.Y.2d 61).
The defendant's remaining contention is academic.
Bracken, J. P., Thompson, Altman and Krausman, JJ., concur.
