DECISION & ORDER
Appeal by the defendant from an order of the County Court, Suffolk County (Kahn, J.), dated April 12, 2012, which, after a hearing pursuant to Correction Law article 6-C, designated him a level three sex offender.
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
The County Court's designation of the defendant as a level three sex offender under the Sex Offender Registration Act (see Correction Law article 6-C) was supported by clear and convincing evidence (see Correction Law article 6-C; People v Geehreng, 101 A.D.3d 975; People v Cox, 100 A.D.3d 866, lv denied 21 N.Y.3d 855; People v Dong V. Dao, 9 A.D.3d 401, 401-402). The defendant's arguments to the contrary are without merit.
BALKIN, J.P., HALL, LOTT and SGROI, JJ., concur.
