State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
November 15, 2012
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
KEVIN MASTERSON, APPELLANT.
Appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court (Lamont, J.), rendered August 6, 2010 in Albany County, convicting defendant upon his plea of guilty of the crime of criminal contempt in the first degree.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Calendar Date: September 26, 2012
Before: Rose, J.P., Spain, McCarthy, Garry and Egan Jr., JJ.
In satisfaction of a three-count indictment, defendant pleaded guilty to criminal contempt in the first degree and waived his right to appeal. In accordance with the plea agreement, he was sentenced as a second felony offender to 11/2 to 3 years in prison. Defendant now appeals.
Appellate counsel seeks to be relieved of her assignment of representing defendant upon the ground that there are no non-frivolous issues to be raised on appeal. Based upon our review of the record and counsel's brief, we agree. Therefore, the judgment is affirmed and counsel's request for leave to withdraw is granted (see People v Cruwys, 113 AD2d 979, 980 , lv denied 67 NY2d 650 ; see generally People v Stokes, 95 NY2d 633 ).
Rose, J.P., Spain, McCarthy, Garry and Egan Jr., JJ., concur.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, and application to be relieved of assignment granted.
