NEW YORK SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FOURTH DEPARTMENT
February 11, 2010
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
APRIL LENO-MARCH, APPELLANT.
Appeal from a judgment of the Ontario County Court (Craig J. Doran, J.), rendered January 15, 2008. The judgment convicted defendant, upon her plea of guilty, of burglary in the first degree and assault in the first degree.
Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
As corrected through Wednesday, March 31, 2010
It is hereby ordered that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.
Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting her upon her plea of guilty of burglary in the first degree (Penal Law § 140.30 ) and assault in the first degree (§ 120.10 ). Contrary to the contention of defendant, the evidence establishes that she knowingly, intelligently and voluntarily waived her right to appeal (see People v Lopez, 6 NY3d 248, 256 ; People v Seaberg, 74 NY2d 1, 11 ). That valid waiver of the right to appeal encompasses defendant's challenges to County Court's suppression ruling (see People v Kemp, 94 NY2d 831, 833 ; People v Garner, 52 AD3d 1265 , lv denied 11 NY3d 736 ), as well as defendant's challenge to the factual sufficiency of the plea allocution (see People v Johnson, 60 AD3d 1496 , lv denied 12 NY3d 926 ; People v Spikes, 28 AD3d 1101, 1102 , lv denied 7 NY3d 818 ; People v Bland, 27 AD3d 1052 , lv denied 6 NY3d 892 ).
Present---Scudder, P.J., Centra, Fahey and Green, JJ.
