State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
September 23, 2010
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
CHARLES R. LYON, APPELLANT.
Appeal from a judgment of the County Court of Saratoga County (Scarano, J.), rendered January 25, 2006, convicting defendant upon his plea of guilty of the crimes of sexual abuse in the first degree and attempted sexual abuse in the first degree.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Calendar Date: August 2, 2010
Before: Peters, J.P., Rose, Kavanagh, McCarthy and Egan Jr., JJ.
After defendant waived indictment and consented to being prosecuted by a superior court information, he pleaded guilty to sexual abuse in the first degree and attempted sexual abuse in the first degree and waived his right to appeal. County Court thereafter sentenced him in accordance with the plea agreement to three years in prison and 21/2 years of postrelease supervision for the conviction of sexual abuse in the first degree and 1a to 4 years in prison for the conviction of attempted sexual abuse in the first degree, the terms to be served concurrently. Defendant now appeals.
Appellate counsel for defendant requests that he be relieved of his assignment on the basis that there are no non-frivolous issues to be advanced on appeal. Having reviewed counsel's brief, defendant's pro se letter and the record, we agree. Therefore, the judgment is affirmed and counsel's application for leave to withdraw is granted (see People v Cruwys, 113 AD2d 979, lv denied 67 NY2d 650 ; see generally People v Stokes, 95 NY2d 633 ).
Peters, J.P., Rose, Kavanagh, McCarthy and Egan Jr., JJ., concur.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, and application to be relieved of assignment granted.
