The Third Department determined no appeal lies from an order denying defendant’s motion to correct, amend or settle the sentencing transcript or from an order adding the mandatory surcharge:
As a general rule, “no appeal lies from a determination made in a criminal proceeding unless one is provided by the CPL, [which] exclusively provides for rights to appeal in criminal matters” … .A defendant’s right to appeal to this Court in a criminal case is “strictly limited to those authorized by statute” … . The … order denying defendant’s motion to correct, amend or settle the sentencing transcript and the uniform sentence and commitment form and adding the mandatory surcharge does not fit within the statutory authorization for appeals by a defendant as of right to this Court (see CPL 450.10 …). Defendant’s reliance on case law involving the correction of trial records on direct appeals from judgments of conviction is misplaced, given that this appeal is not from the judgment of conviction, which was previously affirmed on appeal (303 AD2d at 830).
With regard to the mandatory surcharge, although it should be “levied at sentencing” (Penal Law § 60.35  [a]), it is not part of the sentence that must be pronounced at the sentencing proceeding … . As such, that part of County Court’s order amending the uniform sentence and commitment form by adding the mandatory surcharge did not constitute the imposition of a sentence or a modification of the sentence so as to authorize defendant’s appeal therefrom (see CPL 450.10).

Practice Point: The Criminal Procedure Law lays out all the allowed grounds for appeal in a criminal case. The denial of a motion to correct, amend or settle a sentencing transcript is not appealable. The adding of a mandatory surcharge is not part of a sentence and therefore is not appealable.
