STATE OF MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS In the Matter of PERCY L. GIRARD DANIEL, JR., Minor. FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY, UNPUBLISHED November 20, 1998 Petitioner-Appellee, v No. 208924 Macomb Juvenile Court LC No. 89-034795 NA PERCY LAMONT DANIEL, Respondent-Appellant, and LAURA GIRARD, Respondent. Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ. MEMORANDUM. Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from a juvenile court order terminating his parental rights to the minor child under MCL 712A.19b(3)(g); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(3)(g). We affirm. The juvenile court did not clearly err in finding that the statutory ground for termination was established by clear and convincing evidence. MCR 5.974(I); In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445 NW2d 161 (1989); In re Hamlet (After Remand), 225 Mich App 505, 515; 571 NW2d 750 (1997). Because respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of his parental rights was clearly not in the child’s best interests, the juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent-appellant’s parental rights to the child. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178 (598.19b)(5); In re Hamlet(After Remand), supra. -1­ Affirmed. /s/ Robert P. Young, Jr. /s/ Myron H. Wahls /s/ Kathleen Jansen -2­
