v

JORGE MARCIAL, Appellant.

Calendar Date: August 6, 2018
Before: McCarthy, J.P., Lynch, Devine, Clark and Rumsey, JJ.

Andrew Kossover, Public Defender, Kingston (Michael K. Gould of counsel), for appellant.

D. Holley Carnright, District Attorney, Kingston (Joan Gudesblatt Lamb of counsel), for respondent.



MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Appeal from a judgment of the County Court of Ulster County (Williams, J.), rendered September 29, 2015, convicting defendant upon his plea of guilty of the crime of attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree.

Defendant waived indictment, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree and waived his right to appeal. County Court imposed the agreed-upon sentence. Defendant appeals.

Appellate counsel seeks to be relieved of his assignment of representing defendant on the ground that there are no nonfrivolous issues that may be raised on appeal. Based upon our review of the record and counsel's brief, we agree. Therefore, the judgment is affirmed and counsel's request for leave to withdraw is granted (see People v Cruwys, 113 AD2d 979, 980 [1985], lv denied 67 NY2d 650 [1986]; see generally People v Beaty, 22 NY3d 490, 492-493 [2014]; People v Stokes, 95 NY2d 633 [2001]).

McCarthy, J.P., Lynch, Devine, Clark and Rumsey, JJ., concur.

ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, and application to be relieved of assignment granted.
