Interest of Voisine

No. 20120325

Per Curiam.

1] Voisine appeals from a trial court order denying his request for discharge from commitment as a sexually dangerous individual. Voisine argues the trial court erred in finding he has a congenital or acquired condition manifested by a mental, physical, or sexual disorder; is likely to engage in further acts of sexually predatory conduct; and has serious difficulty controlling his behavior. We conclude the trial court's order is supported by clear and convincing evidence, and we summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).
