RAKWON ROBERTSON, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
THE LEGAL AID BUREAU OF BUFFALO, INC., BUFFALO (BARBARA J. DAVIES OF COUNSEL), FOR DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
JOHN J. FLYNN, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, BUFFALO (JULIE BENDER FISKE OF COUNSEL), FOR RESPONDENT.
Appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Erie County (M. William Boller, A.J.), rendered June 23, 2017. The judgment convicted defendant, upon his plea of guilty, of attempted murder in the second degree, attempted assault in the first degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.
It is hereby ORDERED that the judgment so appealed from is unanimously affirmed.
Memorandum: Defendant appeals from a judgment convicting him upon his plea of guilty of, inter alia, attempted murder in the second degree (Penal Law §§ 110.00, 125.25 ). Contrary to defendant's contention, his valid waiver of the right to appeal with respect to both the conviction and sentence encompasses his challenge to the severity of the sentence (see People v Walker, 151 AD3d 1730, 1731 [4th Dept 2017], lv denied 29 NY3d 1135 , reconsideration denied 30 NY3d 984 ; cf. People v Maracle, 19 NY3d 925, 928 ).
