DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the resentence is affirmed.
The defendant was convicted, after a jury trial, of robbery in the second degree (four counts) and assault in the second degree (two counts). On August 21, 2003, he was sentenced to concurrent determinate terms of imprisonment consisting of 10 years, 8 years, 7 years, and 5 years, respectively, on the convictions of robbery in the second degree, and 5 years and 3 years, respectively, on the convictions of assault in the second degree. In 2008, while the defendant was still incarcerated and serving the original sentence, the defendant was brought before the Supreme Court for resentencing, so that the mandatory period of postrelease supervision could be imposed (see Penal Law § 70.45; Correction Law § 601-d).
Contrary to the defendant's contention, the resentencing did not subject him to double jeopardy (see People v Prendergast, 71 AD3d 1055; cf. People v Williams, 14 NY3d 198). Further, his constitutional right to due process was not violated by the resentencing (see People v Scalercio, 71 AD3d 1060).
The defendant's remaining contentions are without merit.
RIVERA, J.P., FISHER, FLORIO and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
