STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN, UNPUBLISHED November 6, 1998 Plaintiff-Appellee, v No. 192042 Antrim Circuit Court LC No. 95-002940 FC DAVID WESLEY DANIELSON, Defendant-Appellant. Before: Markman, P.J., and Bandstra and J.F. Kowalski*, JJ. MEMORANDUM. 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 affirm. 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.
