STEVEN W. FISHER, J.P., FRED T. SANTUCCI, THOMAS A. DICKERSON, CHERYL E. CHAMBERS and PLUMMER E. LOTT, JJ.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant's waiver of his right to appeal was knowing, voluntary, and intelligent (see People v Lopez, 6 NY3d 248, 256; People v Seaberg, 74 NY2d 1, 11), and it forecloses appellate review of the defendant's claim that the sentence imposed was excessive (see People v Cenname, 66 AD3d 795; People v Hairston, 53 AD3d 669). We note that the defendant was sentenced as a second felony drug offender, a status he does not challenge, and that the court merely misspoke at sentencing when it stated that the defendant was a second violent felony offender.
FISHER, J.P., SANTUCCI, DICKERSON, CHAMBERS and LOTT, JJ., concur.
