This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
PRESENT: SCUDDER, P.J., SMITH, FAHEY, LINDLEY, AND MARTOCHE, JJ.
The order placed respondent on probation for a period of six months.
It is hereby ORDERED that said appeal is unanimously dismissed without costs.
Memorandum: On appeal from an order that adjudicated him to be a juvenile delinquent and placed him on probation for a term of six months, respondent contends only that, by imposing a term of probation and issuing an order of protection, Family Court failed to adopt the "least restrictive available alternative" as required by Family Court Act § 352.2 (2) (a). Inasmuch as the term of probation and order of protection issued by the court have expired, this appeal is moot (see Matter of Alex N., 255 AD2d 626, 627).
Entered: October 5, 2012 Frances E. Cafarell Clerk of the Court
