TPR; abandonment; right to jury trial
Cedrick M. appeals the order terminating his parental rights (TPR) to Heaven M. Cedrick M. contends that the trial court “improperly denied his right to a jury trial on the abandonment and continuing CHIPS allegations,” found in Wis. Stat. § 48.415, by directing a verdict on two of the jury verdict questions; he also contends that the allegation that he failed to assume parental responsibility, another ground for terminating his parental rights found in Wis. Stat. § 48.415(6), was unconstitutionally applied to him. This court affirms. This opinion will not be published.
