THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,

This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
PRESENT: HURLBUTT, J.P., CENTRA, FAHEY, AND PERADOTTO, JJ.
It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.
Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting him upon his plea of guilty of assault in the first degree (Penal Law § 120.10 ). Defendant failed to preserve for our review his contention that County Court erred in ordering restitution without conducting a hearing, and we decline to exercise our power to review that contention as a matter of discretion in the interest of justice (see People v Perry, 50 AD3d 1556, lv denied 10 NY3d 963). To the extent that the further contention of defendant that he was denied effective assistance of counsel survives the plea (see People v Santos, 37 AD3d 1141, lv denied 8 NY3d 950), it concerns matters outside the record and thus must be raised by way of a motion pursuant to CPL article 440 (see People v Leno, 21 AD3d 1399, lv denied 5 NY3d 883; People v Michalski, 15 AD3d 918, 919, lv denied 5 NY3d 854, 6 NY3d 756, cert denied 547 US 1077, reh denied 547 US 1176).
