SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK Appellate Division, Fourth Judicial Department
November 13, 2009
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK,
GIOVANNI CAPOCCETTA, ALSO KNOWN AS JOHN CAPOCCETTA, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
Appeal from a judgment of the Oneida County Court (Michael L. Dwyer, J.), rendered August 24, 2007.
PRESENT: MARTOCHE, J.P., SMITH, PERADOTTO, GREEN, AND PINE, JJ.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
The judgment convicted defendant, upon his plea of guilty, of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.
It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.
Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting him upon his plea of guilty of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree (Penal Law § 265.03 ). Contrary to the contention of defendant, the record establishes that his waiver of the right to appeal was knowingly, intelligently and voluntarily entered (see People v Lopez, 6 NY3d 248, 256). The valid waiver by defendant of the right to appeal encompasses his challenge to the factual sufficiency of the plea allocution, and in any event, defendant failed to preserve that challenge for our review (see People v Grimes, 53 AD3d 1055, 1056, lv denied 11 NY3d 789; People v Jackson, 50 AD3d 1615, 1615-1616, lv denied 10 NY3d 960).
