The People, etc., respondent, v. Ronald Ackridge, also known as William Starke, appellant.

2016–12005 (Ind.No. 16–00143)

Decided: October 31, 2018

CHERYL E. CHAMBERS, J.P. LEONARD B. AUSTIN JEFFREY A. COHEN COLLEEN D. DUFFY, JJ. Marianne Karas, Thornwood, NY, for appellant.

Submitted—May 22, 2018

DECISION & ORDER

Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the County Court, Westchester County (Helen Blackwood, J.), rendered October 18, 2016, convicting him of driving while intoxicated, upon his plea of guilty, and imposing sentence.

ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.

Contrary to the defendant's contention, he knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligently waived his right to appeal (see People v. Moore, 140 AD3d 1091;  People v. Bethea, 133 AD3d 1033).  The County Court adequately explained, and the defendant acknowledged that he understood, the separate and distinct nature of the waiver of the right to appeal, and the defendant signed a written waiver, which he discussed with standby counsel and which adequately supplemented the oral colloquy (see People v. Moore, 140 AD3d at 1091;  People v. Elliot, 137 AD3d 715, 716;  People v. Rivera, 126 AD3d 727, 728).

CHAMBERS, J.P., AUSTIN, COHEN and DUFFY, JJ., concur.
