The People of the State of New York, Appellant, v. Anthony Caldwell, Defendant–Respondent.
Order, Supreme Court, New York County (Michael J. Obus, J.), entered on or about April 2, 2009, which granted defendant's CPL 440.20 motion to set aside his sentence on the ground that he was improperly adjudicated a second felony drug offender whose prior felony conviction was a violent felony, unanimously reversed, on the law, and the original sentence reinstated. Appeal from order, same court and Justice, entered on or about June 3, 2010, which denied the People's CPL 440.40 motion to set aside a judgment of resentence of the same court and Justice, rendered May 7, 2009, resentencing defendant, as a second felony drug offender in accordance with its decision and order of April 2, 2009, to a term of 3 years, unanimously dismissed, as academic.
Defendant is similarly situated to the defendants in People v. Acevedo (17 NY3d 297 ). Accordingly, his violent felony conviction qualifies as a predicate conviction for sentencing purposes in this case.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER
OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
