THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT, v. ANGEL M. VALENTIN, DEFENDANT–APPELLANT.
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
It is hereby ORDERED that the order so appealed from is unanimously affirmed without costs.
Memorandum: On appeal from an order determining that he is a level two risk pursuant to the Sex Offender Registration Act ( [SORA] Correction Law § 168 et seq.), defendant's sole contention is that County Court erred in failing to determine that he was entitled to a downward departure to a level one risk. Inasmuch as defendant failed to request such a departure before or during the SORA hearing, however, he failed to preserve that contention for our review (see People v. Ratcliff, 53 AD3d 1110, lv denied 11 NY3d 708).
