THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT, v. DANIEL W. BROTZ, DEFENDANT–APPELLANT.

KA 11–02403

Decided: July 19, 2013

PRESENT:  SMITH, J.P., FAHEY, PERADOTTO, CARNI, AND LINDLEY, JJ. LEANNE LAPP, PUBLIC DEFENDER, CANANDAIGUA (NEAL D. FUTERFAS OF COUNSEL), FOR DEFENDANT–APPELLANT. R. MICHAEL TANTILLO, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, CANANDAIGUA (DAVID P. DYS 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 six counts each of criminal possession of stolen property in the fourth degree (Penal Law § 165.45[2] ) and identity theft in the third degree (§ 190.78[1] ), defendant contends that County Court violated CPL 380.50(1) by not affording him an opportunity to speak at sentencing about the restitution portion of his sentence.   Because defendant did not request an opportunity to be heard about restitution, the payment of which was contemplated by the plea agreement, and did not object to the order of restitution on that or indeed any other ground, his contention is unpreserved for our review (see CPL 470.05 [2];  People v. McGinn, 96 AD3d 977, 978, lv denied 19 NY3d 998;  People v. Sharp, 56 AD3d 1230, 1231, lv denied 11 NY3d 900), and we decline to exercise our power to review that contention as a matter of discretion in the interest of justice (see CPL 470.15[3][c] ).
