641 N.Y.S.2d 555 (N.Y. App. Div. 1996)

Opinion

April 15, 1996

Appeal from the Family Court, Kings County (Bogacz, J.).


Ordered that the order of disposition is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.

Contrary to the appellant's contention, the Family Court did not improvidently exercise its broad discretion by placing the appellant with the Division for Youth ( see generally, Matter of Jamil W., 184 A.D.2d 513; see also, Family Ct Act § 141). Given the appellant's extensive history of using firearms, dealing heroin, gang membership, violence, and truancy, as well as the continuation of such behavior after the commencement of this proceeding, the Family Court properly declined to place the appellant on probation and in the custody of his aunt. The appellant clearly requires the strict supervision and extensive counseling that he will receive from his placement with the Division for Youth. Thompson, J.P., Sullivan, Pizzuto and McGinity, JJ., concur.
