NORTH CAROLINA COURT OF APPEALS

Filed: 6 May 2003

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA

         v.                        Wake County
                                No. 01 CRS 13152
JOSEPH L. HARRIS,

        Defendant.                        

    Appeal by defendant from judgment entered 25 July 2001 by Judge Henry W. Hight, Jr., in Wake County Superior Court. Heard in the Court of Appeals 14 April 2003.

    Attorney General Roy Cooper, by Assistant Attorney General Tawanda Etheridge, for the State

    John T. Hall for defendant appellant.

    ELMORE, Judge.

    Defendant was convicted of robbery with a firearm and sentenced to 103 to 133 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 (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 thedocuments 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 possible prejudicial error and conclude that the appeal is wholly frivolous.
    No error.
    Judges HUNTER and BRYANT concur.
    Report per Rule 30(e).
