DECISION & ORDER
Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the County Court, Orange County (De Rosa, J.), rendered November 10, 2011, convicting him of sexual abuse in the first degree, upon his plea of guilty, and imposing sentence.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
Contrary to the defendant's contention, his plea of guilty was entered voluntarily, knowingly, and intelligently (see People v Fiumefreddo, 82 N.Y.2d 536, 543; People v Lopez, 71 N.Y.2d 662, 666; People v Harris, 61 N.Y.2d 9, 17).
The defendant's valid waiver of his right to appeal precludes review of his contention that the sentence imposed was excessive (see People v Bradshaw, 18 N.Y.3d 257; People v Lopez, 6 N.Y.3d 248, 255).
ANGIOLILLO, J.P., HALL, ROMAN and COHEN, JJ., concur.
