In the Matter of ERIC MICHAEL DAUGHETEE,
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
October 30, 1998
Wayne Juvenile Court
LC No. 95-330524
BERTHA L. DAUGHETEE,
Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from a juvenile court order terminating her parental
rights to the minor child pursuant to MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i), (g), and (j); MSA
27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i), (g), and (j). We affirm.
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination were
established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974(I); In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445
NW2d 161 (1989); In re Jackson, 199 Mich App 22, 27; 501 NW2d 182 (1993). Further,
respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental rights was clearly not in the child’s
best interests. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App
472-473; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Accordingly, the juvenile court did not err in terminating
respondent-appellant’s parental rights to the minor child. Id.
