DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
A motion to withdraw a plea of guilty rests within the sound discretion of the County Court (see People v Seeber, 4 NY3d 780; People v Mann, 32 AD3d 865; People v Kucharczyk, 15 AD3d 595), whose determination generally will not be disturbed absent an improvident exercise of discretion (see People v DeLeon, 40 AD3d 1008). In this case, the defendant entered her plea of guilty knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligently, having reached a favorable plea bargain with the assistance of competent counsel with whose representation the defendant was satisfied (see People v Mann, 32 AD3d 865). The defendant's generalized and unsubstantiated claim of coercion was not sufficient to warrant the vacatur of the plea of guilty.
MASTRO, J.P., FISHER, FLORIO and ENG, JJ., concur.
