The People, etc., respondent, v. Lamarr Williams, appellant.

2007–02495 (Ind.No. 06–00527)

Decided: May 23, 2012

PETER B. SKELOS, J.P. THOMAS A. DICKERSON L. PRISCILLA HALL SHERI S. ROMAN JEFFREY A. COHEN, JJ. Diane E. Selker, Peekskill, N.Y., for appellant. Francis D. Phillips II, District Attorney, Goshen, N.Y. (Lauren E. Grasso and Andrew R. Kass of counsel), for respondent.

Submitted—May 2, 2012

DECISION & ORDER

Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the County Court, Orange County (Freehill, J.), rendered February 14, 2007, convicting him of assault in the first degree, upon his plea of guilty, and imposing sentence.

ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.

The defendant knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligently waived his right to appeal at his plea allocution (see People v. Ramos, 7 NY3d 737;  People v. Muniz, 91 N.Y.2d 570;  People v. Seaberg, 74 N.Y.2d 1).   The defendant's valid waiver of his right to appeal precludes review of his claim that his sentence was excessive (see People v. Lopez, 6 NY3d 248;  People v. Holman, 89 N.Y.2d 876;  People v. Seaberg, 74 N.Y.2d 1;  People v. Hawthorne, 85 AD3d 819;  People v. Benitez, 84 AD3d 826, 827).

SKELOS, J.P., DICKERSON, HALL, ROMAN and COHEN, JJ., concur.
