Gonzalez, P.J., Mazzarelli, Acosta, Roman, JJ.
Order of disposition, Family Court, Bronx County (Allen G. Alpert, J.), entered on or about March 13, 2012, which adjudicated appellant a juvenile delinquent upon a fact-finding determination that he committed an act that, if committed by an adult, would constitute the crime of grand larceny in the fourth degree, and placed him on probation for a period of 18 months, with 100 hours of community service, unanimously affirmed, without costs.
The disposition was the least restrictive dispositional alternative consistent with appellant's needs and the community's need for protection, and was a proper exercise of discretion (see Matter of Katherine W., 62 NY2d 947 ). The underlying incident was serious and violent, and the length and conditions of probation were not unduly punitive.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
ENTERED: DECEMBER 13, 2012
