People v. Crowder, 11

In this case, defendant pleaded guilty to burglary in the second degree and criminal mischief in the third degree. The plea bargain involved a minimum two years state prison sentence and one and a half to three of parole or PRS. Defendant was thereafter sentenced to five years in prison and three years PRS. Defendant now contends that his plea was not knowing, voluntary, and intelligent because the County Court failed to reiterate the term of PRS during the plea colloquy. The judgment is affirmed, where: 1) neither defendant nor defense counsel expressed any objection to the imposition of PRS; and 2) because defendant had ample opportunity to raise an objection to the PRS component prior to and during these proceedings, defendant was required to preserve his claim.
