ALBERT BOGHDADI, APPELLANT.
Appeal by the defendant from an amended judgment of the Supreme Court, Kings County (Holdman, J.), rendered April 16, 2007, revoking a sentence of probation previously imposed by the same court, upon a finding that he had violated a condition thereof, upon his admission, and imposing a sentence of imprisonment upon his previous conviction of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree.

(Ind. No. 8744/05)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the amended judgment is affirmed.
As the People correctly concede, the defendant's waiver of the right to appeal was not valid (see People v Murray, 68 AD3d 896; People v Cruz, 54 AD3d 962, 963; People v Hurd, 44 AD3d 791, 792) and does not foreclose his current claim.
Nevertheless, despite being informed of the sentence that he was to receive, the defendant admitted to violating a condition of his probation and, therefore, has no basis to complain of the sentence imposed (see People v Delpesce, 68 AD3d 1131; People v Grzywaczewski, 61 AD3d 699, 700; People v Trias, 50 AD3d 828, 828-829; People v Kazepis, 101 AD2d 816). In any event, the sentence imposed was not excessive (see People v Suitte, 90 AD2d 80).
PRUDENTI, P.J., FISHER, COVELLO, LEVENTHAL and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
