STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA

         v.                        Cumberland County
                                No. 98CRS70708
TERRY ALAN GUY
    

    Appeal by defendant from judgment entered 15 March 2001 by Judge Jack A. Thompson in Cumberland County Superior Court. Heard in the Court of Appeals 29 April 2002.

    Attorney General Roy Cooper, by Assistant Attorney General Anne M. Middleton, for the State.

    Toni S. King for defendant-appellant.

    MARTIN, Judge.

    Defendant was charged with violating the terms of his probation. After a hearing, the trial court found that defendant had willfully and without lawful excuse violated the terms of his probation. The court revoked defendant's probation and activated his suspended sentence. Defendant appeals.
    Counsel appointed to represent defendant has been unable to identify any issue with sufficient merit to support a meaningful argument for relief on appeal, and asks that this Court conduct its own review of the record for possible prejudicial error. Counsel has also shown to the satisfaction of this Court that she has complied with the requirements of 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), and State v. Kinch, 314 N.C. 99, 331 S.E.2d 665 (1985), by advising defendant of his right to file written arguments with this Court and providing him with the documents necessary for him to do so.
    Defendant has not filed any written arguments on his own behalf with this Court, and a reasonable time in which he could have done so has passed. In accordance with Anders, we have fully examined the record to determine whether any issues of arguable merit appear therefrom or whether the appeal is wholly frivolous. We conclude that the appeal is wholly frivolous. Furthermore, we have examined the record for possible prejudicial error and found none.
    No error.
    Judges HUNTER and BRYANT concur.
    Report per Rule 30(e).
