Fourth Department — Waiver of Appeal: People v. White

Appellate Division, Fourth Department

Waiver of Appeal

Length of Sentence

People v. White
KA 110-01488
Appealed from Onondaga County Court

Background: The defendant was convicted after pleading guilty to two felonies and waived his right to appeal. He nonetheless challenged the sentence that was imposed.

Ruling: Conviction was affirmed. The waiver of appeal was invalid because the judge’s “perfunctory inquiry” was insufficient. However, the sentence was not harsh or severe.
