DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
The failure of the New York State Board of Parole to consider the sentencing minutes in denying the petitioner's application to be released on parole did not prejudice him (see Galbreith v New York State Bd. of Parole, 58 AD3d 731). As properly found by the Supreme Court, the examination of the sentencing minutes reveals that the sentencing court made no parole recommendation (see Matter of Valerio v New York State Div. of Parole, 59 AD3d 802; Matter of
Motti v Alexander, 54 AD3d 1114, 1115; Matter of Schettino v New York State Div. of Parole, 45 AD3d 1086, 1087).
The petitioner's remaining contentions are without merit.
RIVERA, J.P., RITTER, MILLER and DICKERSON, JJ., concur.
