Mich. case: Parental rights terminated for not protecting children from abuser (access required)

Respondent’s parental rights were correctly terminated because she failed to protect her children from their abuser, who was respondent’s boyfriend. It is immaterial that the boyfriend was incarcerated and was to be deported while this appeal was pending. The issue is not whether the children will be at risk from a particular abuser. Rather, termination is appropriate because respondent had the opportunity to prevent the abuse but did not do so.
