(Ind. No. 2186/05)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
Contrary to the defendant's contentions, the record demonstrates that his written and oral waivers of his right to appeal were intelligently, knowingly, and voluntarily made (see People v Ramos, 7 NY3d 737, 738; People v Luster, 45 AD3d 866, 867; People v Silent, 37 AD3d 625, 625). Consequently, the defendant's valid waiver of his right to appeal forecloses appellate review of his challenges to the procedures employed by the sentencing court in its determination regarding restitution (see People v Callahan, 80 NY2d 273, 280-281; People v Chatmon, 46 AD3d 833, 833-834; People v Caba, 238 AD2d 603, 603).
The defendant's remaining contention is without merit.
MASTRO, J.P., FLORIO, ENG and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
