GATES v. THE STATE.
65306.
CARLEY, Judge.
Kidnapping, etc. Troup Superior Court. Before Judge Jackson.
Appellant appeals from his conviction of kidnapping and aggravated sodomy. Appointed counsel for appellant has filed a motion to withdraw pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U. S. 738 (87 SC 1396, 18 LE2d 493) (1967). As required by Anders, counsel has filed a brief raising points of law which arguably could support the appeal. In addition, pursuant to Bethay v. State, 237 Ga. 625 (229 SE2d 406) (1976), we have fully examined the record and transcript to determine independently if any errors of law occurred. We find that the points raised are without merit and our independent examination discloses no errors requiring reversal. Accordingly, we grant the motion to withdraw and affirm appellant's conviction. After a review of the entire record, we also find that any rational trior of fact could reasonably have found from the evidence adduced at trial proof of appellant's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U. S. 307 (99 SC 2781, 61 LE2d 560) (1979); Baldwin v. State, 153 Ga. App. 35, 37 (264 SE2d 528) (1980).
Arthur E. Mallory III, District Attorney, for appellee.
Lee R. Hasty, for appellant.
DECIDED JANUARY 14, 1983.
