THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT, v. TONEY BEASLEY, DEFENDANT–APPELLANT.

KA 10–00548

Decided: July 01, 2011

PRESENT:  SCUDDER, P.J., SMITH, CARNI, GREEN, AND MARTOCHE, JJ. THE LEGAL AID BUREAU OF BUFFALO, INC., BUFFALO (BARBARA J. DAVIES OF COUNSEL), FOR DEFENDANT–APPELLANT. FRANK A. SEDITA, III, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, BUFFALO (J. MICHAEL MARION OF COUNSEL), FOR RESPONDENT.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously modified on the law by vacating the sentence and as modified the judgment is affirmed, and the matter is remitted to Erie County Court for resentencing in accordance with the following Memorandum:  Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting him upon his plea of guilty of burglary in the first degree (Penal Law § 140.30[4] ).   We agree with defendant that County Court erred in failing to set forth on the record its determination denying defendant's request for youthful offender treatment (see CPL 720.20[1];  People v. Lee, 79 AD3d 1641;  cf.  People v. Wargula, _ AD3d _ [July 1, 2011] ).   We therefore modify the judgment by vacating the sentence, and we remit the matter to County Court for resentencing after a determination whether defendant should be sentenced as a youthful offender (see Lee, 79 AD3d at 1641–1642).
