March 13, 1990

Appeal from the Supreme Court, Bronx County (Alexander Chananau, J.).


We are unpersuaded that the sentence imposed was unduly harsh or severe. Taking into account, "among other things, the crime charged, the particular circumstances of the individual before the court and the purpose of a penal sanction", we perceive no abuse of discretion warranting a reduction in sentence (People v Farrar, 52 N.Y.2d 302, 305).

Further, defendant was sentenced in accordance with her plea bargain and within statutory guidelines. "Having received the benefit of [her] bargain, defendant should be bound by its terms" (People v Felman, 141 A.D.2d 889, 890, lv denied 72 N.Y.2d 918).
