Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Second Department, New York.

The PEOPLE, etc., respondent, v. Angel Pulla CHACHA, appellant.

-- December 11, 2013

PETER B. SKELOS, J.P., THOMAS A. DICKERSON, PLUMMER E. LOTT, and LEONARD B. AUSTIN, JJ. Lynn W.L. Fahey, New York, N.Y., for appellant. Charles J. Hynes, District Attorney, Brooklyn, N.Y. (Leonard Joblove and Amy Applebaum of counsel; Gregory Musso on the brief), for respondent.

Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Kings County (Jeong, J.), rendered February 28, 2012, as amended December 3, 2012, convicting him of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first degree, upon his plea of guilty, and imposing sentence. Assigned counsel has submitted a brief in accordance with Anders v. California (386 U.S. 738) in which she moves to be relieved of the assignment to prosecute this appeal.

ORDERED that the judgment, as amended, is affirmed.

We are satisfied with the sufficiency of the brief filed by the defendant's assigned counsel pursuant to Anders v. California (386 U.S. 738), and, upon an independent review of the record, we conclude that there are no nonfrivolous issues which could be raised on appeal. Counsel's application for leave to withdraw as counsel is, therefore, granted (see Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738; Matter of Giovanni S. [Jasmin A.], 89 AD3d 252; People v. Paige, 54 A.D.2d 631; cf. People v. Gonzalez, 47 N.Y.2d 606).
