Andrias, J.P., Saxe, Sweeny, Nardelli, Freedman, JJ.
For the reasons stated in Matter of Jazmin A. (AD3d [decided herewith]), we conclude that appellant was unlawfully remanded to detention in the absence of a violation of probation petition. Since there was no compliance with the procedural requirements of Family Court Act § 355.2, we similarly decline to decide the hypothetical questions presented concerning Family Court Act § 355.1.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
