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

The PEOPLE of the State of New York, Respondent, v. David WATSON, also known as Jeffrey Frierson, also known as Jamie Fry, Defendant-Appellant.

Decided: February 21, 2006

TOM, J.P., MAZZARELLI, ANDRIAS, NARDELLI, MALONE, JJ. Laura R. Johnson, The Legal Aid Society, New York (Eve Kessler of counsel), for appellant.

Judgment, Supreme Court, Bronx County (Steven Barrett, J.), rendered on or about October 23, 2003, unanimously affirmed.

Application by appellant's counsel to withdraw as counsel is granted (see Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S.Ct. 1396, 18 L.Ed.2d 493 [1967];  People v. Saunders, 52 A.D.2d 833, 384 N.Y.S.2d 161 [1976] ).   We have reviewed this record and agree with appellant's assigned counsel that there are no non-frivolous points which could be raised on this appeal.

Pursuant to Criminal Procedure Law § 460.20, defendant may apply for leave to appeal to the Court of Appeals by making application to the Chief Judge of that court and by submitting such application to the Clerk of that court or to a Justice of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of this Department on reasonable notice to the respondent within thirty (30) days after service of a copy of this order, with notice of entry.

Denial of the application for permission to appeal by the judge or justice first applied to is final and no new application may thereafter be made to any other judge or justice.
