In the Matter of DESHAWN MCNEAL, Minor.
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
November 20, 1998
Wayne Juvenile Court
LC No. 93-308789
MONIQUE ROSHAWN MCNEAL,
GARY PATTERSON YOUNG,
Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals as of right the juvenile court’s order terminating her parental
rights to the minor child pursuant to MCL 712A.19b(3)(b)(ii), (c)(i), (g) and (j); MSA
27.3178(598.19b)(3)(b)(ii), (c)(i), (g) and (j). We affirm.
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(I); In re Conley, 216 Mich App 41, 42;
549 NW2d 353 (1996). Further, respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental
rights is clearly not in the best interests of the child. 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. In re Hall-Smith, supra.
