COURT OF APPEALS
In the Matter of PERCY L. GIRARD DANIEL, JR.,
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
November 20, 1998
Macomb Juvenile Court
LC No. 89-034795 NA
PERCY LAMONT DANIEL,
Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
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.
