FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
October 30, 1998
Ingham Juvenile Court
LC No. 00-004527
ROBERT JOSEPH WELLS,
Before: Young Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from the juvenile court order terminating his parental
rights to the minor child under MCL 712A.19b(3)(g) and (h); MSA 27.3178(598.19b) (3)(g) and (h).1
We affirm. This case is being decided without oral argument pursuant to MCR 7.214(E).
Any error in the juvenile court’s admission of evidence was harmless because the challenged
evidence was cumulative to testimony provided by respondent-appellant.
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory ground for termination under §
19b(3)(g) was established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974(I); In re Miller, 433 Mich
331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989). Further, respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of his
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 470, 472-473; 564 NW2d 156 (1997).
Thus, the juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent-appellant’s parental rights to the minor

The mother of the minor child has not appealed the termination of her parental rights.
