Judgment, Supreme Court, New York County (Renee A. White, J.), rendered May 17, 2011, convicting defendant, upon his plea of guilty, of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, and sentencing him to a term of five years' probation, unanimously affirmed.
While the question of whether a defendant was prejudiced by the lack of advice from the court about the deportation consequences of a guilty plea is generally to be determined by way of a hearing (see People v Peque (22 N.Y.3d 168, 200 , cert denied 574 US ___, 135 S.Ct. 90 ), under the circumstances of this case, viewed as a whole, we find no reasonable possibility that defendant could make the requisite showing of prejudice at a hearing.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
