MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
The case is held, the decision is reserved, the motion to r
elieve counsel of assignment is granted and new counsel is to be assigned. Memorandum:
Defendant was convicted upon his plea of guilty of aggravated driving while intoxicated as a felony
(Vehicle and Traffic Law §§ 1192 [2-a]; 1193  [c] [i]), and driving while intoxicated as a felony (§§ 1192 ;
1193  [c] [i]), and was sentenced to concurrent indeterminate terms of imprisonment of 1 ⅔ to 5 years.
Defendant appealed and his assigned counsel now moves to be relieved of the assignment on the ground that the
appeal is frivolous (see People v Crawford, 71 AD2d 38). Upon our review of the record, we conclude that a non-frivolous issue
exists as to the legality of the sentence (see Penal Law § 70.00  [e]). We therefore relieve counsel of her assignment and assign
new counsel to brief this issue, as well as any other issues that counsel's review of the record may disclose.
(Appeal from Judgment of Ontario County Court, Craig J. Doran, J. - Driving While Intoxicated).
