STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA
v. Cabarrus County
Nos. 06 CRS 53321;
06 CRS 15208
JESSEE MAE JONES JAMES
Attorney General Roy A. Cooper, III, by Associate Attorney
General Catherine F. Jordan, attorney for the State.
Peter Wood, attorney for defendant-appellant.
On 29 January 2007, Jesse Mae Jones James (defendant) pled
guilty to felonious possession of a stolen vehicle and to being an
habitual felon. Defendant was sentenced to 101 to 131 months
imprisonment. Defendant filed timely notice of appeal.
Defense counsel represents that he has been unable to identify any issues that, in his opinion, have sufficient merit to support an argument and, consequently, submits defendant's 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), and State v. Kinch, 314 N.C. 99, 331 S.E.2d 665 (1985). By letter dated 23 April 2007, defense counsel informed defendant that he was unable to find error in defendant's trial and that defendant could file her own arguments with this Court, if she so desired. Copies of the transcript, record, and brief filed by counsel were sent to defendant. Accordingly, we hold that defendant's counsel has complied with the holdings in Anders and Kinch. See Anders, 386 U.S. at 744, 18 L. Ed. 2d at 498; Kinch, 314 N.C. at 102, 331 S.E.2d at 666.67.
Defendant has filed no written arguments in this Court, and a reasonable time for her to have done so has passed.
In accordance with Anders, we have examined the record for possible prejudicial error and found no issues of arguable merit. No error.
Chief Judge MARTIN and Judge CALABRIA concur.
