DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
A writ of habeas corpus may not be used for review of issues that have been, or could have been, reviewed on direct appeal or by post-judgment motion in the court where the conviction occurred (see People ex rel. Almeyda v Schultz, 18 AD3d 582; People ex rel. Barnes v Fischer, 303 AD2d 526; People ex rel. Pearson v Garvin, 211 AD2d 690, 691; People ex rel. Moore v Scully, 189 AD2d 845). The allegations in the petition do not warrant a departure from traditional orderly procedure (see People ex rel. Keitt v McMann, 18 NY2d 257; CPL 210.30).
The petitioner's remaining contentions are unpreserved for appellate review.
SKELOS, J.P., FLORIO, HALL and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
