SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK Appellate Division, Fourth Judicial Department
October 2, 2009
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
CALVIN WHITE, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT. (APPEAL NO. 1.)
Appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Monroe County (Francis A. Affronti, J.), rendered December 6, 2005. The judgment convicted defendant, upon a jury verdict, of robbery in the second degree and petit larceny.
PRESENT: SMITH, J.P., CENTRA, FAHEY, CARNI, AND PINE, JJ.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.
In these consolidated appeals, defendant appeals from judgments convicting him following a jury trial of, inter alia, four counts of robbery in the second degree (Penal Law § 160.10 ). Contrary to the contention of defendant, Supreme Court properly denied his request for substitution of counsel inasmuch as he failed to demonstrate the requisite good cause for substitution (see People v Linares, 2 NY3d 507, 510-512; see generally People v Sides, 75 NY2d 822, 824). There is no merit to defendant's contention that the court applied an incorrect standard in determining whether there was good cause for substitution (see generally People v Medina, 44 NY2d 199, 207-209). Also contrary to defendant's contention, the sentence imposed in each appeal is not unduly harsh or severe.
