DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
The Supreme Court's determination to designate the defendant a level two sex offender was supported by clear and convincing evidence (see People v Fisher, 36 AD3d 880; People v Inghilleri, 21 AD3d 404; People v Guaman, 8 AD3d 545). There is no merit to the defendant's contention that he was entitled to a downward departure from this risk level (see People v Gonzalez, 48 AD3d 284; People v Warren, 42 AD3d 593; People v Lombard, 30 AD3d 573).
DILLON, J.P., SANTUCCI, FLORIO and HALL, JJ., concur.
