THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
GUILLERMO TORRES, III, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.

This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
PRESENT: SCUDDER, P.J., MARTOCHE, CENTRA, FAHEY, AND PERADOTTO, JJ.
It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously reversed on the law, the plea is vacated, and the matter is remitted to Supreme Court, Monroe County, for further proceedings on the indictment.
Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting him upon his plea of guilty of attempted murder in the second degree (Penal Law §§ 110.00, 125.25 ) and assault in the first degree (§ 120.10 ). We agree with defendant that reversal and vacatur of the plea is required inasmuch as Supreme Court sentenced him to a period of postrelease supervision but failed to advise him thereof at the time of the plea (see People v Louree, 8 NY3d 541, 545-546; People v Catu, 4 NY3d 242, 245; People v Trisvan, 53 AD3d 1057). In light of our determination, we need not address defendant's remaining contention.
