(Ind. No. 271/06)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is modified, as a matter of discretion in the interest of justice, by reducing the consecutive determinate term of imprisonment on the third count of robbery in the first degree from 25 years to 15 years; as so modified, the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant received meaningful representation of counsel (see People v Benevento, 91 NY2d 708, 712; People v Baldi, 54 NY2d 137).
The sentence was excessive to the extent indicated herein.
The defendant's remaining contentions either are without merit or do not require reversal.
FISHER, J.P., DILLON, DICKERSON and ENG, JJ., concur.
