COURT OF APPEALS
In the Matter of JACOB MCTEVIA, Minor.
FAMILY INDEPENDENCE AGENCY,
November 24, 1998
St. Clair Juvenile Court
LC No. 94-000107
JO ELLEN MCTEVIA,
Before: Young, Jr., P.J., and Wahls and Jansen, JJ.
Respondent-appellant appeals as of right from a juvenile court order terminating her parental
rights to the minor child pursuant to 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. MCL 5.974(I); In re Miller, 433 Mich 331, 337; 445
NW2d 161 (1989); In re Hall-Smith, 222 Mich App 470; 564 NW2d 156 (1997). Further,
respondent-appellant failed to show that termination of her parental rights was clearly not in the minor
child’s best interests. MCL 712A.19b(5); MSA 27.3178(598.19b)(5); In re Hall-Smith, supra.
Thus, the juvenile court did not err in terminating respondent-appellant’s parental rights to the child. Id.
