THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT, v. LAQUANN MORGAN, DEFENDANT–APPELLANT.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.
Memorandum: Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting him upon his plea of guilty of manslaughter in the first degree (Penal Law § 125.20 ). The record establishes that defendant knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligently waived his right to appeal (see generally People v. Lopez, 6 NY3d 248, 256), and that valid waiver encompasses his challenge to the severity of the sentence (see People v. Lococo, 92 N.Y.2d 825, 827; People v. Hidalgo, 91 N.Y.2d 733, 737).
