THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT, v. STEPHAN A. WROBLEWSKI, DEFENDANT–APPELLANT.

KA 12–00813

Decided: June 14, 2013

PRESENT:  SMITH, J.P., PERADOTTO, LINDLEY, AND VALENTINO, JJ. DAVID J. FARRUGIA, PUBLIC DEFENDER, LOCKPORT (JOSEPH G. FRAZIER OF COUNSEL), FOR DEFENDANT–APPELLANT. MICHAEL J. VIOLANTE, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, LOCKPORT (LAURA T. BITTNER OF COUNSEL), FOR RESPONDENT.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.

Memorandum:  On appeal from a judgment convicting him upon his plea of guilty of, inter alia, attempted burglary in the first degree (Penal Law §§ 110.00, 140.30[2] ), defendant contends that his sentence is unduly harsh and severe.   As part of the plea agreement, however, defendant waived his right to appeal.   Because County Court advised defendant of the maximum sentence that could be imposed prior to his waiver and defendant does not otherwise challenge the voluntariness of his waiver, he is foreclosed from challenging the severity of his sentence on appeal (see People v. Lococo, 92 N.Y.2d 825, 827;  People v. Grant, 96 AD3d 1697, 1697, lv denied 19 NY3d 997;  cf.   People v. Newman, 21 AD3d 1343, 1343).
