LC No. 95-002937 NA
JAMES EDWARD CRAMIER,
Before: Young Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
Respondent James Edward Cramier appeals as of right from an order terminating his parental
rights to his daughter, Jamie Jo Cramier, pursuant to MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i) and (g); MSA
27.3178(598.19b)(3)(c)(i) and (g). We affirm.
The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory grounds for termination were
established by clear and convincing evidence. MCL 5.974(I); In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445
NW2d 161 (1989); In re Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App 470; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Further,
respondent failed to show that termination of his parental rights was clearly not in his child’s best
interests. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re Hall-Smith, supra. Thus, the
juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent’s parental rights to the child. Id.
