State of New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division Third Judicial Department
May 16, 2013
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
MICHAEL B. LYNN, APPELLANT.
Appeal from a judgment of the County Court of Ulster County (Williams, J.), rendered May 19, 2011, convicting defendant upon his plea of guilty of the crime of grand larceny in the third degree.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Peters, P.J.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Calendar Date: April 24, 2013
Before: Peters, P.J., Rose, Lahtinen and Garry, JJ.
Defendant waived indictment and pleaded guilty to a superior court information charging him with grand larceny in the third degree and waived his right to appeal. County Court thereafter sentenced him, as a second felony offender, to the agreed-upon sentence of 31/2 to 7 years in prison. Defendant appeals.
Defendant does not dispute that he validly waived his right to appeal, and our review of the record reveals that the waiver encompassed both his conviction and sentence (see People v Maracle, 19 NY3d 925 ). Accordingly, defendant's claim of judicial bias is precluded by his valid appeal waiver (see People v Carbone, 101 AD3d 1232, 1233 ; People v White, 81 AD3d 1039, 1039 ), as is his contention that his sentence is harsh and excessive (see People v Ferro, 101 AD3d 1243, 1244 , lv denied ___ NY3d ___ [Mar. 15, 2013]; People v Lopez, 97 AD3d 853, 853-854 , lv denied 19 NY3d 1027 ).
Rose, Lahtinen and Garry, JJ., concur.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
