The People, etc., respondent, v. Jonathan Spencer, appellant.
Submitted—November 16, 2011
DECISION & ORDER
Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the County Court, Nassau County (Grella, J.), rendered July 13, 2010, convicting him of robbery in the first degree, upon his plea of guilty, and imposing sentence.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant's valid waiver of his right to appeal precludes appellate review of his claim that the sentence was excessive (see People v. Lopez, 6 NY3d 248, 255–256; People v. Hawthorne, 85 AD3d 819; People v. Benitez, 84 AD3d 826).
RIVERA, J.P., FLORIO, ENG, HALL and COHEN, JJ., concur.

Clerk of the Court
