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

The PEOPLE of the State of New York ex rel. William KELLY, Petitioner-Respondent, v. NEW YORK STATE DIVISION OF PAROLE, et al., Respondents-Appellants.

Decided: August 26, 1999

ELLERIN, P.J., ROSENBERGER, BUCKLEY and FRIEDMAN, JJ. Mary Lynn Nicolas, for Respondents-Appellants.

Order, Supreme Court, Bronx County (Caesar Cirigliano, J.), entered on or about January 29, 1999, which, inter alia, granted petitioner's writ of habeas corpus to the extent of annulling respondent's determination imposing a time assessment of 16 months and remanding the matter to respondent for resentencing, unanimously modified, on the law, to vacate the remand and deny the writ in its entirety, and otherwise affirmed, without costs.

For the reasons stated in People ex rel. Johnson v. Russi, 258 A.D.2d 346, 685 N.Y.S.2d 661, application of the 1997 parole guidelines in 9 NYCRR 8005.20(c) to an inmate convicted and incarcerated prior to their promulgation does not violate the ex post facto clause.   Petitioner's remaining claims were properly rejected.
