FRANK A. SEDITA, III, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, BUFFALO (NICHOLAS T. TEXIDO 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: On appeal from a judgment convicting him upon his plea of guilty of, inter alia, criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree (Penal Law § 220.06 ), defendant contends that Supreme Court failed to conduct a sufficient inquiry pursuant to People v Outley (80 N.Y.2d 702) into his violation of the conditions of the plea agreement before imposing an enhanced sentence. We conclude that defendant's contention is not preserved for our review inasmuch as he failed to request such a hearing and did not move to withdraw his plea on that ground (see People v Scott, 101 A.D.3d 1773, 1773; People v Anderson, 99 A.D.3d 1239, 1239, lv denied 20 N.Y.3d 1059), and we decline to exercise our power to review that contention as a matter of discretion in the interest of justice (see CPL 470.15  [a]; Scott, 101 A.D.3d at 1773; People v Darcy, 34 A.D.3d 230, 231, lv denied 8 N.Y.3d 879). We further conclude that the enhanced sentence is not unduly harsh or severe.
