DECISION & ORDER
Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Westchester County (Lorenzo, J.), rendered October 13, 2010, convicting him of course of sexual conduct against a child in the first degree, upon his plea of guilty, and imposing sentence.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant validly waived his right to appeal (see People v Ramos, 7 N.Y.3d 737). Accordingly, the defendant waived his right to seek appellate review of the suppression ruling, claims of ineffective assistance of counsel that did not affect the voluntariness of the plea (see People v Soria, 99 A.D.3d 1027, 1028), and the alleged excessiveness of the sentence (see People v Bissoon, 100 A.D.3d 917). The record reveals that the defendant received an advantageous plea, and nothing in the record casts doubt on the apparent effectiveness of counsel (see People Ropiza, 100 A.D.3d 935).
BALKIN, J.P., CHAMBERS, ROMAN and HINDS-RADIX, JJ., concur.
