DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed insofar as appealed from.
The Supreme Court correctly denied that branch of the defendant's motion which was, in effect, to be resentenced as a Class A-II felony offender pursuant to the Drug Law Reform Act of 2004 (L 2004, ch 738; hereinafter the 2004 DLRA). Contrary to the defendant's contention, the 2004 DLRA does not permit the court to disturb the underlying Class A-I felony conviction (see People v Quinones, 22 AD3d 218, 219).
SKELOS, J.P., DILLON, McCARTHY and ENG, JJ., concur.
