THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT,
JOHN RAYNOR, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
Appeal from a judgment of the Erie County Court (Kenneth F. Case, J.), rendered August 24, 2011. The judgment convicted defendant, upon his plea of guilty, of attempted rape in the first degree.
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 attempted rape in the first degree (Penal Law §§ 110.00; 130.35 ). Contrary to defendant's contention, the record establishes that he knowingly, voluntarily and intelligently waived his right to appeal (see generally People v Lopez, 6 N.Y.3d 248, 256). County Court advised defendant at the time of the waiver of the potential maximum term of incarceration, and thus the waiver encompasses defendant's present challenge to the severity of his sentence (see People v Grant, 96 A.D.3d 1697, 1697, lv denied 19 N.Y.3d 997; see generally People v Lococo, 92 N.Y.2d 825, 827; People v Hidalgo, 91 N.Y.2d 733, 737).
