DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
Contrary to the defendant's contention, the hearing court properly assessed points for risk factor 7 because he was a stranger to the victim (see People v Lewis, 45 AD3d 1381, 1381; People v Penson, 38 AD3d 866, 867; Sex Offender Registration Act: Risk Assessment Guidelines and Commentary at 12 [2006 revisions] [hereinafter Guidelines]). Furthermore, the court properly assessed points for risk factor 11, given the defendant's admission regarding his alcohol usage at the time of the offense (see People v Carpenter, 60 AD3d 833, 833; People v Robinson, 55 AD3d 708, 708; Guidelines at 15).
The defendant's remaining contentions are without merit.
PRUDENTI, P.J., MILLER, CHAMBERS and ROMAN, JJ., concur.
