GATES v. THE STATE.
62252.
MCMURRAY, Presiding Judge.
Criminal attempt. Troup Superior Court. Before Judge Jackson.
Defendant was convicted of the offenses of criminal attempt to commit rape, aggravated assault, and criminal damage to property in the second degree. After the appeal was filed in this court defendant's appointed counsel filed a request for permission to withdraw from the case pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U. S. 738 (87 SC 1396, 18 LE2d 493), that is, that after a careful and conscientious examination of the record and proceedings counsel believes that an appeal from this case would be wholly frivolous. Counsel has fully complied with the requirements of Bethay v. State, 237 Ga. 625 (229 SE2d 406). See also, Hill v. State, 238 Ga. 564 (233 SE2d 796).
After examination of the record and transcript we find the appeal is wholly frivolous. Counsel has been granted permission to withdraw. The defendant has been notified of this action and of his options by reason thereof. No other counsel has been appointed or employed and defendant has not raised any enumeration of error or valid ground for appeal prior to the rendition of this opinion.
In compliance with the above cases, we have fully and carefully examined the record and transcript. We find no reversible error. A rational trier of fact (the jury in the case sub judice) could reasonably have found from the evidence adduced at the trial proof of guilt of the defendant beyond a reasonable doubt of the offenses of criminal attempt to commit rape, aggravated assault, and criminal damage to property in the second degree. See, Snell v. State, 246 Ga. 648 (272 SE2d 348); Baldwin v. State, 153 Ga. App. 35, 37 (264 SE2d 528). See also, Mason v. State, 157 Ga. App. 392 (278 SE2d 498).
Arthur E. Mallory III, District Attorney, for appellee.
DECIDED SEPTEMBER 15, 1981.
