DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgments are affirmed.
The record of the plea proceeding reveals that the defendant pleaded guilty knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligently (see People v McPherson, 60 AD3d 872). Insofar as the defendant's complaints about counsel rest on matters dehors the record, they are not reviewable on direct appeal (see People v Yagudaev, 70 AD3d 984). To the extent that the record permits review of the defendant's claim that he was denied the effective assistance of counsel, the defendant received meaningful representation (see Strickland v Washington, 466 US 668; People v Henry, 95 NY2d 563, 564; People v Baldi, 54 NY2d 137, 147).
The defendant's claims regarding the content of the presentence report and the conduct of the court are not preserved for appellate review (see CPL 470.05) and, in any event, are without merit.
The sentences imposed were not excessive (see People v Suitte, 90 AD2d 80; People v Kazepis, 101 AD2d 816).
FISHER, J.P., COVELLO, LOTT and SGROI, JJ., concur.
