DECISION & ORDER

In two related child neglect proceedings pursuant to Family Court Act article 10, the father appeals from an order of fact-finding and disposition of the Family Court, Queens County (Salinitro, J.), dated January 24, 2011, which, after fact-finding and dispositional hearings, found that he neglected the subject children and placed him under the supervision of the Administration for Children's Services for a period of one year.

ORDERED that the appeal from so much of the order of fact-finding and disposition as placed the father under the supervision of the Administration for Children's Services for a period of one year is dismissed as academic, without costs or disbursements, as the period of supervision has expired; and it is further,

ORDERED that the order of fact-finding and disposition is affirmed insofar as reviewed, without costs or disbursements.

Contrary to the father's contentions, the Family Court properly found that he neglected the subject children by selling controlled substances from the home and possessing multiple quantities of prescription drugs, cocaine, and marijuana, that were readily accessible to the children (see Family Ct Act §§ 1012[f][i][B]; 1046[a][iii]; see also Matter of Jared M. [ Ernesto C. ], 99 A.D.3d 474, 474-475; Matter of Evan E. [ Lasheen E. ], 95 A.D.3d 1114, 1114-1115; Matter of Eugene L. [ Julianna H. ], 83 A.D.3d 490; Matter of Fernando S., 63 A.D.3d 610, 611; Matter of Paul J., 6 A.D.3d 709, 710; Matter of Michael R., 309 A.D.2d 590, 590-591).

MASTRO, J.P., HALL, LOTT and SGROI, JJ., concur.
