The People of the State of New York, Respondent, v. Lamar Pierce, Defendant–Appellant.
Judgment, Supreme Court, New York County (Bruce Allen, J.), rendered January 15, 2015, unanimously affirmed.
Application by defendant's counsel to withdraw as counsel is granted (see Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 ; People v. Saunders, 52 A.D.2d 833 [1st Dept 1976] ). We have reviewed this record and agree with defendant'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.
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.
