Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Department, New York.

The PEOPLE of the State of New York, Respondent,


Kristopher SURDIS, Appellant.

June 5, 1997.

Randall Kehoe, Albany, for appellant.

Michael Kavanagh, District Attorney (Joan Gudesblatt Lamb, of counsel), Kingston, for respondent.

Appeal from a judgment of the County Court of Ulster County (Bruhn, J.), rendered February 14, 1996, convicting defendant upon his plea of guilty of the crime of falsely reporting an incident in the first degree.

Defendant admitted at the sentencing hearing to having telephoned several supermarkets to communicate the false information that a bomb had been secreted therein. He was *781 convicted on his guilty plea and sentenced to a definite term of one year in jail. We find that defendant's guilty plea was knowing, voluntary and intelligent as was his waiver of the right to appeal executed at the time of his plea. As a result, none of the issues raised by defendant has been preserved for our review (see, People v. Calvi, 89 N.Y.2d 868, 653 N.Y.S.2d 89, 675 N.E.2d 843; People v. Callahan, 80 N.Y.2d 273, 590 N.Y.S.2d 46, 604 N.E.2d 108).

ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
