The PEOPLE of the State of New York, Respondent, v. Heriberto A. CAJIGAS, Appellant.

Decided: December 18, 2014

Before: McCARTHY, J.P., GARRY, LYNCH and CLARK, JJ. Albert F. Lawrence, Greenfield Center, for appellant. Mary E. Rain, District Attorney, Canton (Patricia C. Campbell, Syracuse, of counsel), for respondent.

Appeal from a judgment of the County Court of St. Lawrence County (Richards, J.), rendered November 9, 2012, convicting defendant upon his plea of guilty of the crime of driving while intoxicated.

In full satisfaction of an indictment and an uncharged crime, defendant pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated and waived his right to appeal. Pursuant to the plea agreement, County Court thereafter sentenced defendant to a prison term of 11/313 to 4 years, to run consecutively to a term he was currently serving for an unrelated offense, to be followed by a conditional discharge of three years to run consecutively to his imprisonment, with the requirement that he comply with the ignition interlock program. Defendant now appeals.

We affirm. While defendant's challenge to the voluntariness of his plea survives his waiver of the right to appeal, the issue is unpreserved for our review as the record does not reveal that he made an appropriate postallocution motion (see People v. Fate, 117 AD3d 1327, 1328 [2014]; People v. Trombley, 115 AD3d 1114, 1114 [2014], lv denied 23 NY3d 1068 [2014] ). Moreover, the narrow exception to the preservation requirement was not implicated, as defendant did not make any statements during the plea colloquy that cast doubt on his guilt or otherwise called into question the voluntariness of his plea (see People v. Griffin, 117 AD3d 1339 [2014]; People v. O'Neill, 116 AD3d 1240, 1241 [2014] ). Contrary to defendant's contention, County Court did not err in imposing the conditional discharge to run consecutively to his prison sentence (see Penal Law § 60.21; People v. O'Brien, 111 AD3d 1028, 1029 [2013] ).

ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.

GARRY, J.
