THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, Respondent, v. NEVIN ROBERTS, Appellant.

109423

Decided: August 01, 2019

Before:  Garry, P.J., Egan Jr., Clark, Mulvey and Aarons, JJ. Kathy Manley, Selkirk, for appellant.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Calendar Date:  June 21, 2019

Appeal from a judgment of the County Court of Albany County (Lynch, J.), rendered September 13, 2016, convicting defendant upon his plea of guilty of the crime of manslaughter in the first degree.

In satisfaction of a two-count indictment, defendant pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree and waived his right to appeal, both orally and in writing.  He was sentenced, pursuant to the plea agreement, to 20 years in prison, followed by five years of postrelease supervision.  Defendant appeals.

Appellate counsel seeks to be relieved of her assignment of representing defendant on the ground that there are no nonfrivolous issues to be raised on appeal.  Based upon our review of the record and counsel's brief, we agree.  Therefore, the judgment is affirmed and counsel's request for leave to withdraw is granted (see People v. Cruwys, 113 A.D.2d 979, 980 [1985], lv denied 67 N.Y.2d 659 [1986];  see generally People v. Beaty, 22 NY3d 490 [2014];  People v. Stokes, 95 N.Y.2d 633 [2001] ).

Garry, P.J., Egan Jr., Clark, Mulvey and Aarons, JJ., concur.

ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, and application to be relieved of assignment granted.
