The Second Department determined defendant was entitled to further inquiry into whether she violated the terms of her plea agreement. Defendant was not sentenced in accordance with the agreement based solely on the prosecutor’s assertion she had not successfully completed a Mental Health Court program:
The County Court failed to conduct an inquiry sufficient to assure that the defendant had, in fact, violated the terms of the plea agreement and that the information upon which it based the sentence was reliable and accurate … . Thus, we remit the matter … for a sufficient inquiry and a new determination as to whether the defendant violated the terms of the plea agreement, and for resentencing thereafter.
Moreover, as acknowledged by the People, the County Court should not have pronounced sentence without first receiving a presentence investigation report … . People v Dimon, 2019 NY Slip Op 05417, Second Dept 7-3-19
