THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
IRVIN MAYE, JR., APPELLANT.

Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
As corrected through Wednesday, April 28, 2010
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 attempted criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree (Penal Law §§ 110.00, 265.03 ). Supreme Court properly denied the motion of defendant to withdraw the plea, which was based upon his alleged lack of knowledge at the time of the plea that the victim was unable to identify him. "[D]efendant [was] not entitled to withdraw his . . . plea merely because he discover[ed] that he misapprehended the quality of the [People's] case" (People v Murdock, 27 AD3d 1170, 1171  [internal quotation marks omitted]).
Present---Scudder, P.J., Peradotto, Carni, Green and Gorski, JJ.
