Appellate Term, Second Department
Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
This opinion is uncorrected and will not be published in the printed Official Reports.
PRESENT: WESTON, J.P., PESCE and RIOS, JJ
The judgment convicted defendant, upon his plea of guilty, of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree.
ORDERED that the judgment of conviction is affirmed.
Defendant pleaded guilty to criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree (Penal Law § 220.03). His present challenge to the validity of his plea, which does not come within the narrow exception to the preservation requirement, is unpreserved for appellate review since he failed to move to withdraw his guilty plea or seek to vacate the judgment of conviction (People v Lopez, 71 NY2d 662, 665 ), and we decline to review it in the interest of justice. Accordingly, the judgment of conviction is affirmed.
Weston, J.P., Pesce and Rios, JJ., concur.
