THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
JENNIFER NICKEL, APPELLANT.
Appeal from a judgment of the County Court of Ulster County (Williams, J.), rendered February 7, 2011, convicting defendant upon her plea of guilty of the crime of burglary in the second degree (two counts).
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Calendar Date: May 22, 2012
Before: Mercure, J.P., Rose, Lahtinen, Stein and McCarthy, JJ.
In 2010, defendant, who operated a home cleaning business, was charged in two indictments with various crimes after she stole numerous items, including jewelry, clothing and furniture, from approximately 14 households where she had been employed. Thereafter, defendant pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary in the second degree in satisfaction of both indictments, and was sentenced to six years in prison followed by five years of postrelease supervision. County Court also directed defendant to make restitution in the amount of $3,980. Defendant appeals, and we now affirm.
Defendant's claim that there was insufficient evidence in the record supporting the amount of restitution ordered is unpreserved for our review in light of her failure to request a hearing or otherwise challenge the restitution amount at sentencing (see People v Vasavada, 93 AD3d 893, 894 ; People v White, 66 AD3d 1130, 1130-1131 ). Her challenge to the duration of the order of protection issued at sentencing is similarly unpreserved (see CPL 470.05 ; see generally People v Nieves, 2 NY3d 310 ). Finally, defendant's claim that the sentence imposed is harsh and excessive is without merit.
Mercure, J.P., Rose, Lahtinen, Stein and McCarthy, JJ., concur.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
