PRESENT: SMITH, J.P., FAHEY, CARNI, GREEN, AND GORSKI, JJ.
It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.
On appeal from a judgment convicting her upon her plea of guilty of grand larceny in the third degree (Penal Law § 155.35), defendant contends that her right to due process was violated when Supreme Court allegedly conditioned its sentencing commitment on her payment of a portion of the restitution amount by the date of sentencing. Defendant failed to preserve that contention for our review (see generally People v Riley, 9 AD3d 902, lv denied 3 NY3d 741), and we decline to exercise our power to review it as a matter of discretion in the interest of justice (see CPL 470.15  [a]). Contrary to the further contention of defendant, her waiver of the right to appeal was knowingly, intelligently and voluntarily entered (see People v Lopez, 6 NY3d 248, 256), and her challenge to the severity of the sentence is encompassed by that valid waiver (see People v Hidalgo, 91 NY2d 733, 737; People v Billins, 68 AD3d 1794, lv denied 14 NY3d 797).
