DECISION & ORDER

Appeals by the defendant from two judgments of the Supreme Court, Kings County (William Miller, J.), both rendered October 24, 2017, convicting him of criminal possession of a forged instrument in the second degree under Indictment No. 3838/16, and criminal possession of a forged instrument in the second degree under Indictment No. 7003/17, respectively, upon his pleas of guilty, and imposing sentences. Assigned counsel has submitted a brief in accordance with Anders v California (386 US 738), in which she moves for leave to withdraw as counsel for the appellant.

ORDERED that the judgments are affirmed.

We are satisfied with the sufficiency of the brief filed by the defendant's assigned counsel pursuant to Anders v California (386 US 738), and, upon an independent review of the record, we conclude that there are no nonfrivolous issues which could be raised on the appeals. Counsel's application for leave to withdraw as counsel is, therefore, granted (see id.; Matter of Giovanni S. [Jasmin A.], 89 AD3d 252; People v Paige, 54 AD2d 631; cf. People v Gonzalez, 47 NY2d 606).
