WILLIAMS v. THE STATE.
61221.
SOGNIER, Judge.
Armed robbery. Dougherty Superior Court. Before Judge Horne, Senior Judge.
Williams was convicted in the Superior Court of Dougherty County of armed robbery. He was sentenced to 20 years confinement, four years of which were probated. After the appeal was filed in this court, appellant's counsel filed a request for permission to withdraw as counsel on the ground that an appeal would be wholly frivolous, pursuant to the holding of Anders v. California, 386 U. S. 738 (87 SC 1396, 18 LE2d 493) (1966). Our Supreme Court has held that appointed counsel may withdraw from a case on appeal only upon compliance with the rules set out in Anders, supra. Bethay v. State, 237 Ga. 625 (229 SE2d 406) (1976).
As required by the decision in Bethay, we have examined fully the record and transcript and find the appeal is completely frivolous. We find that all of the Anders requirements have been met, and accordingly counsel is granted permission to withdraw and the appeal is dismissed.
William S. Lee, District Attorney, for appellee.
DECIDED JANUARY 5, 1981.
