(Ind. No. 08-00505)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant's contention that his plea was not knowing or voluntary is unpreserved for appellate review, since he did not move to withdraw his plea on these grounds (see People v Mitchell, 69 AD3d 883). The narrow exception to the preservation rule (see People v Lopez, 71 NY2d 662, 666) is inapplicable here (see People v Smith, 43 AD3d 474).
The sentence imposed was not excessive (see People v Suitte, 90 AD2d 80).
SKELOS, J.P., DILLON, ANGIOLILLO, ENG and SGROI, JJ., concur.
