REINALDO E. RIVERA, J.P., ANITA R. FLORIO, DANIEL D. ANGIOLILLO and PLUMMER E. LOTT, JJ.
ORDERED that the resentence is reversed, on the law, the term of postrelease supervision is vacated, and the original sentence imposed May 15, 2002, is reinstated.
As held by the Court of Appeals in People v Williams, 14 NY3d 198,"the Double Jeopardy Clause prohibits a court from resentencing the defendant to the mandatory term of [postrelease supervision] after the defendant has served the determinate term of imprisonment and has been released from confinement." In accordance with People v Williams, the People correctly concede that the term of postrelease supervision challenged on this appeal must be vacated. Accordingly, the resentence is reversed, the term of postrelease supervision is vacated, and the original sentence imposed May 15, 2002, is reinstated.
In light of our determination, we do not consider the defendant's remaining contentions.
RIVERA, J.P., FLORIO, ANGIOLILLO and LOTT, JJ., concur.
