Armed robbery. Hall Superior Court. Before Judge Palmour.

George W. Brown, Jr., for appellant.

Jeff C. Wayne, District Attorney, for appellee.


Woodring was convicted in the Superior Court of Hall County of armed robbery and aggravated battery. 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 completely frivolous, pursuant to the holding of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 ( 87 SC 1396, 18 L.Ed.2d 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. Bethay v. State, 237 Ga. 625 ( 229 S.E.2d 406) (1976).

As required by the decision in Bethay, we have examined fully the record and transcript and find the appeal to be 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.

Appeal dismissed. McMurray, P. J., and Banke, J., concur.
