DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed insofar as appealed from.
The Supreme Court properly denied, without a hearing, that branch of the defendant's motion which was pursuant to CPL 440.30(1-a) for DNA testing since the defendant failed to show that there was a reasonable probability that the verdict would have been more favorable to him had DNA tests been performed (see CPL 440.30[1-a]; People v Weay, 54 AD3d 695; People v Brown, 36 AD3d 961; People v Shenouda, 307 AD2d 938; People v Pugh, 288 AD2d 634; People v De Oliveira, 223 AD2d 766).
RIVERA, J.P., LEVENTHAL, BELEN and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
