ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
We agree with the Supreme Court that the petitioner's claims are without merit. Requiring the petitioner to register under the Sex Offender Registration Act (Correction Law art 6-C) does not violate the ex post facto clause of the federal constitution (US Const, art I, § 10), the due process clauses of the state or federal constitutions (NY Const, art I, § 6; US Const, Amend XIV), or the petitioner's right to equal protection of the law (see People v Knox, 12 NY3d 60, 67, cert denied US, 130 S Ct 552; People v Buss, 11 NY3d 553; Matter of North v Board of Examiners of Sex Offenders of State of N.Y., 8 NY3d 745, 752).
FISHER, J.P., DILLON, DICKERSON and BELEN, JJ., concur.
