WILLIAM F. MASTRO, J.P., RUTH C. BALKIN, ARIEL E. BELEN and CHERYL E. CHAMBERS, JJ.
(Ind. No. 933/06, S.C.I. No. 2264/06)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgments are affirmed.
The decision whether to permit a defendant to withdraw his pleas of guilty lies in the sound discretion of the court (see CPL 220.60; People v Woodhouse, 65 AD3d 1267, 1267; People v Rodriguez, 270 AD2d 434, 434-435). Contrary to the defendant's contention, the Supreme Court providently exercised its discretion in denying, without a hearing, the defendant's application to withdraw his pleas of guilty (see People v Torres, 215 AD2d 702, 702-703).
MASTRO, J.P., BALKIN, BELEN and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
