The imposition of mandatory surcharges and fees by way of court documents, but without mention in the court's oral pronouncement of sentence, was lawful (see People v Harris, 51 AD3d 523 , lv denied 10 NY3d 935 ). Moreover, in this case the court actually imposed these assessments at sentencing, but merely omitted the dollar amounts.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
