(Ind. No. 2910-06)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed. The right of a defendant to withdraw a previously-entered plea of guilty rests within the sound discretion of the sentencing court (see People v Seeber, 4 NY3d 780; People v Mann, 32 AD3d 865; People v Kucharczyk, 15 AD3d 595). That decision will not be disturbed absent an improvident exercise of discretion (see People v DeLeon, 40 AD3d 1008). Contrary to the defendant's contentions, there is nothing in the record which would warrant disturbing the sentencing court's determination to deny his application to withdraw his plea of guilty.
SKELOS, J.P., SANTUCCI, ANGIOLILLO, DICKERSON and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
