THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT, v. ANDRE JOHNSON, 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 ). Contrary to defendant's contention, the record establishes that he knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligently waived the right to appeal (see generally People v. Lopez, 6 NY3d 248, 256), and that valid waiver forecloses any challenge by defendant to the severity of the sentence (see id. at 255; see generally People v. Lococo, 92 N.Y.2d 825, 827; People v. Hidalgo, 91 N.Y.2d 733, 737).
