ROBERT A. SPOLZINO, J.P., FRED T. SANTUCCI, DANIEL D. ANGIOLILLO and JOHN M. LEVENTHAL, JJ.
ORDERED that the judgment is modified, on the law, to provide that the sentences shall run concurrently with each other; as so modified, the judgment is affirmed.
Having found the defendant to be a youthful offender, the Supreme Court was without authority to impose consecutive sentences with an aggregate total in excess of four years (see Penal Law §§ 60.02; 70.00; 70.00; CPL 720.20[a]; People v Ralph W. C., 21 AD3d 904; People v Richard P., 12 AD3d 382; People v Lucci, 193 AD2d 623, 624; People v Simmons, 188 AD2d 668).
SPOLZINO, J.P., SANTUCCI, ANGIOLILLO and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
