         v.                        Wake County
                                Nos. 00 CRS 42376-79
DERRICK LEON JEFFREYS,
        Defendant.                        

    Appeal by defendant from judgments entered 12 January 2001 by Judge Donald W. Stephens in Wake County Superior Court. Heard in the Court of Appeals 23 December 2002.

    Attorney General Roy Cooper, by Assistant Attorney General June S. Ferrell, for the State

    John T. Hall, for defendant-appellant.

    
    HUDSON, Judge.

    Defendant was convicted of three counts of attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and sentenced to two consecutive terms of seventy-two to ninety-six months' imprisonment. 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 he 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. We have been unable to find any prejudicial error.
    No error.
    Chief Judge EAGLES and Judge MCCULLOUGH concur.
    Report per Rule 30(e).
