HANSON v. THE STATE.
63071.
BIRDSONG, Judge.
Drug violation. Warren Superior Court. Before Judge Stevens.
Jessie Hanson was convicted of two counts of violations of the Controlled Substances Act, i.e., selling marijuana, and was sentenced to four years on Count 1 and seven years on Count 2, to be served concurrently. His appointed attorney has filed a motion to withdraw as counsel pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U. S. 738 (87 SC 1396, 18 LE2d 493). In accordance with Anders, counsel has filed a brief raising two points of law which he considered arguably could support an appeal. In addition, as required by Bethay v. State, 237 Ga. 625 (229 SE2d 406), we have examined fully the record and transcript to determine independently if there are any meritorious errors of law. We are in agreement with counsel that neither of the points raised, though persuasively presented, has any merit nor does our independent examination disclose any errors of substance. Following personal notification of this motion to withdraw, appellant has made no additional appearance nor offered any objection to the motion. Therefore, this court grants the motion to withdraw, and we affirm the conviction (see Snell v. State, 246 Ga. 648 (272 SE2d 348)). We are satisfied that the evidence adduced at trial was sufficient to enable any rational trier of fact to find guilt of the crimes charged beyond reasonable doubt. Jackson v. Virginia, 443 U. S. 307 (99 SC 2781, 61 LE2d 560); Baldwin v. State, 153 Ga. App. 35, 37 (264 SE2d 528).
Kenneth E. Goolsby, District Attorney, for appellee.
Samuel A. Fowler, Jr., for appellant.
DECIDED JANUARY 20, 1982.
