Defendant's valid waiver of his right to appeal forecloses any challenge to the severity of his sentence (see People v Lopez, 6 NY3d 248, 255 ). Regardless of the validity of the waiver of the right to appeal, the court properly exercised its discretion in denying defendant's request for youthful offender treatment, given defendant's serious and repeated crimes.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
