THE LEGAL AID BUREAU OF BUFFALO, INC., BUFFALO (ROBERT L. KEMP OF COUNSEL), FOR DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
FRANK A. SEDITA, III, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, BUFFALO (DAVID PANEPINTO OF COUNSEL), FOR RESPONDENT.
PRESENT: SMITH, J.P., FAHEY, CARNI, VALENTINO, AND WHALEN, JJ.
It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.
Memorandum: Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting him, upon his plea of guilty, of course of sexual conduct against a child in the second degree (Penal Law § 130.80  [a]). Contrary to defendant's contention, the record establishes that he knowingly, voluntarily and intelligently waived the right to appeal (see generally People v Lopez, 6 N.Y.3d 248, 256). That valid waiver encompasses defendant's contention that County Court erred in refusing to suppress his statements to the police (see People v Mack, 96 A.D.3d 1689, 1689, lv denied 19 N.Y.3d 1027; People v Aguayo, 37 A.D.3d 1081, 1081, lv denied 8 N.Y.3d 981), as well as his challenge to the severity of the sentence (see Lopez, 6 N.Y.3d at 255; People v Lococo, 92 N.Y.2d 825, 827).
