COLLEEN D. DUFFY BETSY BARROS PAUL WOOTEN, JJ. (Ind. No. 2942/15)
Paul Skip Laisure, New York, NY (Martin B. Sawyer of counsel), for appellant.
Melinda Katz, District Attorney, Kew Gardens, NY (John M. Castellano, Johnnette Traill, and Michael J. Curtis of counsel), for respondent.
DECISION & ORDER
Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Queens County (Ira H. Margulis, J.), rendered January 17, 2018, convicting him of criminal possession of a forged instrument in the first degree, upon his plea of guilty, and imposing sentence. The appeal brings up for review the denial, after a hearing (Steven W. Paynter, J.), of those branches of the defendant's omnibus motion which were to suppress physical evidence and statements he made to law enforcement officials.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The record demonstrates that the defendant knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligently waived his right to appeal (see People v Sanders, 25 NY3d 337, 339-342; People v Lopez, 6 NY3d 248, 256-257). The defendant's valid waiver of his right to appeal precludes this Court's review of his challenge to the Supreme Court's suppression determination (see People v Kemp, 94 NY2d 831, 833; People v Garcia, 175 AD3d 612).
