(Ind. No. 5427/05)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
Contrary to the defendant's contention, he was afforded meaningful representation and, therefore, was not denied the effective assistance of counsel (see People v Berroa, 99 NY2d 134, 138; People v Henry, 95 NY2d 563, 565; People v Benevento, 91 NY2d 708, 712).
The sentence imposed was not excessive (see People v Suite, 90 AD2d 80).
RIVERA, J.P., FLORIO, DICKERSON and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
