Defendant made a valid waiver of his right to appeal, which forecloses his excessive sentence claim (see People v Lopez, 6 NY3d 248 ). In any event, we perceive no basis for reducing the sentence.
As the People concede, since the crimes were committed prior to the effective date of the legislation providing for the imposition of a sex offender registration fee, that fee should not have been imposed.
The other surcharges and fees were properly imposed (see People v Guerrero, 12 NY3d 45 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
