JAMES ARTHUR MONROE

    Appeal by defendant from judgments entered 5 June 2001 by Judge Steve A. Balog in Lee County Superior Court. Heard in the Court of Appeals 22 April 2002.

    Attorney General Roy Cooper, by Special Deputy Attorney General Roy A. Giles, Jr., for the State.

    John T. Hall for defendant-appellant.

    MARTIN, Judge.

    Defendant was found guilty of two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was sentenced to consecutive prison terms of a minimum of 100 and a maximum of 129 months.
    Defendant's appointed counsel has filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 18 L. Ed. 2d 493, reh'g denied, 388 U.S. 924, 18 L. Ed. 2d 1377 (1967). He states that he is unable to identify any issue with sufficient merit to support a meaningful argument for relief on appeal. He requests this Court to review the record for possible prejudicial error. Counsel has attached to the brief copies of correspondence addressed to defendant advising defendant in accordance with Anders, including his right to file written arguments directly with this Court. Thus, counsel has demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Court that he has complied with the requirements of Anders, supra, and State v. Kinch, 314 N.C. 99, 331 S.E.2d 665 (1985). Defendant has not filed any written arguments on his own behalf, not withstanding the passage of sufficient time within which to do so.
    After thoroughly reviewing the record, we have been unable to find any possible prejudicial error to support a meaningful appeal and conclude the appeal is frivolous.
    No error.
    Judges HUNTER and BRYANT concur.
    Report per Rule 30(e).
