Appeal from the District Court of Burleigh County, South Central Judicial District, the Honorable Bruce A. Romanick, Judge.
Per Curiam.

Matter of J.M.

No. 20100398

Per Curiam.

1] J.M. appeals from a trial court order denying his petition for discharge and continuing his commitment as a sexually dangerous individual. He argues the State did not prove by clear and convincing evidence he has serious difficulty controlling his behavior and remains a sexually dangerous individual. We conclude the trial court did not clearly err in denying J.M.'s petition for discharge and affirm the trial court's order under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
