MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Appeal from a judgment of the County Court of Broome County (Cawley, J.), rendered January 11, 2011, convicting defendant upon his plea of guilty of the crime of attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree.

Defendant now appeals, arguing solely that the agreed-upon sentence was harsh and excessive. Noting the favorable plea resolution and defendant's criminal history, however, we discern neither an abuse of discretion by County Court nor the existence of extraordinary circumstances that would warrant a reduction of the sentence in the interest of justice (see People v Shaw, 51 A.D.3d 1062, 1063 , lv denied 10 N.Y.3d 964 ; People v Ross, 45 A.D.3d 897, 897 ).
