(Ind. No. 1234/06)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant's claim of ineffective assistance of counsel is based, in part, on matter dehors the record and, therefore, cannot be reviewed on direct appeal (see People v Sloane, 59 AD3d 745; People v Borthwick, 51 AD3d 1211). Insofar as we are able to review the defendant's claim, the record does not support the defendant's claim that he was denied the effective assistance of counsel under either the Federal or State Constitution (see Strickland v Washington, 466 US 668; People v Baldi, 54 NY2d 137; People v Brisman, 51 AD3d 685).
The defendant's remaining contention is unpreserved for appellate review and, in any event, is without merit.
FISHER, J.P., MILLER, CHAMBERS and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
