DECISION & ORDER
The People, etc., respondent,
v William Parez, appellant.
(Ind. No. 7778/11)
Lynn W. L. Fahey, New York, N.Y., for appellant.
Kenneth P. Thompson, District Attorney, Brooklyn, N.Y. (Leonard Joblove and Amy
Appelbaum of counsel; Gregory Musso on the brief), for respondent.
Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Kings County
(DiMango, J., at plea, Cyrulnik, J., at sentence), rendered November 28, 2011, convicting him of
attempted robbery in the third degree, upon his plea of guilty, and imposing sentence. Assigned
counsel has submitted a brief in accordance with Anders v California (386 US 738), in which she
moves for leave to withdraw as counsel for the appellant.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
We are satisfied with the sufficiency of the brief filed by the defendant’s assigned
counsel pursuant to Anders v California (386 US 738), and, upon an independent review of the
record, we conclude that there are no nonfrivolous issues which could be raised on the appeal.
Counsel’s application for leave to withdraw as counsel is, therefore, granted (see Anders v
631; cf. People v Gonzalez, 47 NY2d 606; cf. People v Sedita, 113 AD3d 638, 638).
