DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant's contention that he was deprived of the effective assistance of counsel is not properly before this Court since it is based upon matter that is outside the record (see People v Ali, 55 AD3d 919; People v Drago, 50 AD3d 920; People v LeGrady, 50 AD3d 1059, 1060; People v Ross, 41 AD3d 870, 871; People v Villacreses, 12 AD3d 624, 626).
Since the defendant pleaded guilty with the understanding that he would receive the sentence which was thereafter actually imposed, he has no basis to now complain that the sentence imposed was excessive (see People v De Alvarez, 59 AD3d 732; People v Fanelli, 8 AD3d 296; People v Mejia, 6 AD3d 630, 631; People v Kazepis, 101 AD2d 816). In any event, the sentence imposed was not excessive (see People v Suitte, 90 AD2d 80).
SKELOS, J.P., DILLON, ANGIOLILLO, ENG and SGROI, JJ., concur.
