ADAM DOUGLAS ROE APPELLANT
STATE OF ARKANSAS APPELLEE
APPEAL FROM THE CRITTENDEN COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT [NO. CR-2011-641] HONORABLE DAVID GOODSON, JUDGE
Brett D. Watson, Attorney at Law, PLLC, by: Brett D. Watson, for appellant.
BRANDON J. HARRISON, Judge
Adam Roe appeals from the revocation of his probation and resulting sentence of three years' imprisonment. Roe's attorney has filed a no-merit brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and Ark. Sup. Ct. R. 4-3(k)(1) (2013), along with a motion to withdraw as counsel, asserting that there is no issue of arguable merit for an appeal. The clerk of our court mailed a certified copy of counsel's motion and brief to Roe in accordance with Ark. Sup. Ct. R. 4-3(k)(2), informing him of his right to file pro se points for reversal. Roe has not filed pro se points for reversal, and the State has not filed a brief. We grant the motion to withdraw and affirm.
The test for filing a no-merit brief is not whether there is any reversible error, but whether an appeal would be wholly frivolous. Tucker v. State, 47 Ark.App. 96, 885 S.W.2d 904 (1994). Based on our review of the record for potential error pursuant to Anders and the requirements of Rule 4-3(k), we hold that Roe's appeal is wholly without 1 merit. Therefore, pursuant to sections (a) and (b) of In re Memorandum Opinions, 16 Ark.App. 301, 700 S.W.2d 63 (1985), we issue this memorandum opinion granting counsel's motion to withdraw and affirming the court's revocation.
Affirmed; motion to withdraw granted.
Vaught and Brown, JJ., agree.
