DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
The fair preponderance of the evidence supports the Family Court's determination that the appellant committed acts constituting harassment in the second degree in violation of Penal Law § 240.26(3), warranting the issuance of the order of protection, inter alia, directing him to stay away from his mother for a period of two years (see Tabernuro v Jones, 23 AD3d 667).
SPOLZINO, J.P., FLORIO, COVELLO and ENG, JJ., concur.
