Antrim Circuit Court
LC No. 95-002940 FC
DAVID WESLEY DANIELSON,
Before: Markman, P.J., and Bandstra and J.F. Kowalski*, JJ.
Although originally charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, MCL
750.520b(1)(b); MSA 28.788(2)(1)(b), involving his daughter, defendant pleaded guilty to two counts
of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, MCL 750.520d(1)(a); MSA 28.788(4)(1)(a), and was
sentenced to concurrent terms of 7-1/2 to 15 years’ imprisonment. Defendant appeals as of right. We
Defendant’s sentences are entirely proportionate to the seriousness of the offenses and the
circumstances of the offender, particularly in light of the benefits bestowed upon defendant by the plea
bargain and in light of the sentencing guidelines’ failure to adequately account for the repeated nature of
the abuse occurring over a significant period of time. People v Houston, 448 Mich 312; 532 NW2d
508 (1995); People v Dixon, 217 Mich App 400, 411-413; 552 NW2d 663 (1996).
