Decided on December 10, 2012
PRESENT: NICOLAI, P.J., IANNACCI and LaSALLE, JJ
The judgment convicted defendant, upon his plea of guilty, of driving while impaired by drugs and sentenced him to one year's incarceration and a fine of $500.
ORDERED that the judgment of conviction is affirmed.
Contrary to defendant's contention, we find that the sentence imposed upon defendant's conviction of driving while impaired by drugs (Vehicle and Traffic Law § 1192 ) was neither harsh nor excessive. Defendant has failed to establish extraordinary circumstances that would warrant disturbing the sentence (see People v Bussey, 67 AD3d 819 ).
Accordingly, the judgment of conviction is affirmed.
Nicolai, P.J., Iannacci and LaSalle, JJ., concur.
