Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Guy McClure, Nashville, Tennessee, for the Appellant, David W.

Attorneys 2:

Jade Rogers Maberry, Gallatin, Tennessee, for the Appellee, The Association for Guidance, Aid, Placement and Empathy, Inc.

Judge(s): DINKINS

Father’s parental rights to his son were terminated on the ground that Father is confined in a correctional facility for more than ten years as a result of a criminal act and that the child was under the age of eight at the time of Father’s sentencing. Father contends that the trial court should have considered the possibility of his receiving parole in determining whether grounds for termination of his rights were present and whether termination was in the child’s best interest. Finding no error, we affirm the trial court.
