COURT OF APPEALS
In the Matter of ARSENIO ANTONIO CASTON,
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
November 6, 1998
DEBRA ANN CASTON,
Wayne Juvenile Court
LC No. 95-330569
Before: Young Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
Respondent appeals as of right from the juvenile court order terminating her parental rights to
the minor child under MCL 712A.19b(3)(c)(i), (g) and (j); MSA 27.3178(598.19b) (3)(c)(i), (g) and
(j). We affirm. This case is being decided without oral argument pursuant to MCR 7.214(E).
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; In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445
NW2d 161 (1989). Further, respondent 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 HallSmith, 222 Mich App 470, 472-473; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Thus, the juvenile court did not err in
terminating respondent’s parental rights to the child. Id.
