NORTH CAROLINA COURT OF APPEALS

Filed: 18 November 2003

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA

         v.                        Guilford County
                                No. 99CRS30580
DERRICK MARKIE JEFFERS
    
    

    Appeal by defendant from judgment entered 22 March 2000 by Judge William H. Freeman in Guilford County Superior Court. Heard in the Court of Appeals 10 November 2003.

    Attorney General Roy Cooper, by Assistant Attorney General Patrick S. Wooten, for the State.

    Walter L. Jones for defendant-appellant.

    LEVINSON, Judge.

    Defendant Derrick Markie Jeffers was convicted of robbery with a dangerous weapon. The trial court sentenced him to 103-133 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, 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.
    Chief Judge EAGLES and Judge BRYANT concur.
    Report per Rule 30(e).
