(Ind. No. 569B-05)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is reversed, on the law, the plea of guilty is vacated, and the matter is remitted to the County Court, Suffolk County, for further proceedings.
The record does not establish that the defendant was informed, prior to entering his plea, that his sentence would necessarily include a period of postrelease supervision. As the People concede, the plea must therefore be vacated (see People v Louree, 8 NY3d 541; People v Bernard, 53 AD3d 586; People v Cook, 49 AD3d 777; People v Thompson, 47 AD3d 648).
SKELOS, J.P., DILLON, CARNI and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
