A court of appeals affirmed the termination of a father's parental rights. Deportation flowing from an unknown offense occurring many years earlier cannot satisfy the state's burden of proving by clear and convincing evidence that a parent engaged in an endangering course of conduct, nor can mere guesswork undergird such a finding. The court of appeals' judgment is reversed in part and remanded. Texas Supreme Court, No. 11-0713, 10-12-2012.
