DECISION & ORDER
Appeal by the defendant, as limited by his motion, from a sentence of the Supreme Court, Richmond County (Rienzi, J.), imposed August 23, 2010, on the ground that the sentence was excessive.
ORDERED that the sentence is affirmed.
The defendant's purported waiver of the right to appeal was invalid (see People v Bradshaw, 18 N.Y.3d 257, 265; People v Lopez, 6 N.Y.3d 248, 256-257; People v Sommerville, 104 A.D.3d 880; People v McHugh, 101 A.D.3d 754, lv denied 20 N.Y.3d 1101; People v Badru, 98 A.D.3d 1132), and thus does not preclude review of his excessive sentence claim. However, the sentence imposed was not excessive (see People v Suitte, 90 A.D.2d 80).
ENG, P.J., RIVERA, LEVENTHAL and SGROI, JJ., concur.
