Decided on October 23, 2012
Tom, J.P., Andrias, Saxe, DeGrasse, Manzanet-Daniels, JJ.
Judgment, Supreme Court, New York County (Michael J. Obus, J.), rendered January 3, 2008, convicting defendant, upon his plea of guilty, of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree and assault in the second degree, and sentencing him to an aggregate term of two years, unanimously affirmed.
Defendant made a valid waiver of his right to appeal (see People v Ramos, 7 NY3d 737 ). The court's thorough colloquy with defendant was itself sufficient to establish the validity of the waiver. In addition, the colloquy was supplemented by a written waiver.
As an alternative holding (see People v Callahan, 80 NY2d 273, 285 ), we reject defendant's challenges to the statutes relating to possession of gravity knives (see People v Herbin, 86 AD3d 446, 447-48 [1st Dept 2011], lv denied 17 NY3d 859 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
