The PEOPLE of the State of New York, Respondent, v. Jerome JAMISON, Defendant–Appellant.

Decided: June 18, 2013

ANDRIAS, J.P., FRIEDMAN, MOSKOWITZ, DeGRASSE, FEINMAN, JJ. Steven Banks, The Legal Aid Society, New York (Lorraine Maddalo of counsel), for appellant. Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., District Attorney, New York (Allen J. Vickey of counsel), for respondent.

Order, Supreme Court, New York County (Gregory Carro, J.), entered on or about January 5, 2010, which adjudicated defendant a level three sexually violent offender pursuant to the Sex Offender Registration Act (Correction Law art 6–C), unanimously affirmed, without costs.

The court properly applied the presumptive override for a prior felony sex crime conviction (see People v. Judd, 29 AD3d 431 [2006], lv denied 7 NY3d 709 [2006] ). Although defendant's prior conviction of attempted rape in the first degree occurred in 1991, it involved a six-year-old girl. Furthermore, in 2008, defendant committed the underlying sex crime shortly after he had been placed on probation for his conviction of endangering the welfare of a child, based upon his stalking of a 10–year–old girl and his attempt to lure her into his car. Even considering the mitigating factors cited by defendant, including his positive postrelease conduct, these “separate incidents, years apart, suggest[ ] a dangerous propensity” that supported the court's determination (People v. Poole, 105 AD3d 654, 654 [1st Dept 2013] ).
