DECISION & ORDER
Appeal by the defendant from an order of the County Court, Dutchess County (Forman, J.), dated February 14, 2012, which, after a hearing, designated him a level two sex offender pursuant to Correction Law article 6-C.
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
Contrary to the defendant's contention, the County Court properly assessed him 15 points under risk factor 11 for a history of alcohol abuse (see People v Finizio, 100 A.D.3d 977, 978; People v Harris, 93 A.D.3d 704, 705; People v Goodwin, 49 A.D.3d 619, 620-621; see generally People v Palmer, 20 N.Y.3d 373). Accordingly, the defendant's assessment as a level two sex offender will not be disturbed.
DILLON, J.P., ANGIOLILLO, CHAMBERS and HINDS-RADIX, JJ., concur.
