The record, taken as a whole (see People v Providence, 2 NY3d 579, 583 ), demonstrates that defendant made a knowing and intelligent waiver of his right to counsel, and that the court's warnings of the risks of self-representation were sufficient in light of all the surrounding circumstances, including defendant's criminal history.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
