Appeal from the Supreme Court, Queens County (Hanophy, J.).
Ordered that the judgment and the order are affirmed.
We find no merit to the defendant's contention that he should have been permitted to withdraw his plea of guilty. The decision to permit the withdrawal of a guilty plea rests within the sound discretion of the court (see, CPL 220.60). The defendant's unsupported conclusory allegations of innocence did not warrant the vacatur of his guilty plea (see, People v Tannenbaum, 116 A.D.2d 677; People v Pettway, 140 A.D.2d 721). Furthermore, contrary to the defendant's contentions, the record reveals that the defendant knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine after the defendant had ample time to consult with his attorney and after he had discussed all aspects of the case with his counsel. Moreover, the defendant received the effective assistance of counsel, as demonstrated by his counsel's negotiation of an extremely advantageous plea bargain (see, People v Nicholls, 157 A.D.2d 1004, 1005). We have considered the defendant's remaining contentions, including those raised in his pro se supplemental brief, and find that they are without merit. Bracken, J.P., Miller, O'Brien and Pizzuto, JJ., concur.
