IN THE INTEREST OF E. R. D.
68911.
CARLEY, Judge.
Child custody. Gwinnett Juvenile Court. Before Judge Morgan.
This is an appeal by the grandmother of a six-year-old child from an order of a juvenile court finding the child to be deprived and placing temporary custody of the child with the Gwinnett County Department of Family and Children Services. Appellant asserts that the finding that the child is deprived is not supported by the evidence.
Insofar as is relevant to the instant appeal, OCGA 15-11-2 (8) defines a deprived child as a child who "is without proper parental care or control, subsistence, education as required by law, or other care or control necessary for his physical, mental, or emotional health or morals . . . ." It is well established that clear and convincing evidence is required to support a finding of deprivation. OCGA 15-11-33 (b) (1); In re Suggs, 249 Ga. 365 (291 SE2d 233) (1982); In re R. R. M. R., 169 Ga. App. 373 (312 SE2d 832) (1983).
Joseph E. Cheeley, for appellee.
Jack T. Elrod, for appellant.
