STATE OF MONTANA, Plaintiff and Appellee,
CLIFFORD DIONE OLDHORN, Defendant and Appellant.
Counsel for Defendant and Appellant Clifford Dione Oldhorn filed a motion and brief asking to be allowed to withdraw from this appeal on grounds that he has been unable to find any nonfrivolous issues to raise on appeal, pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S.Ct. 1396 (1967), and § 46-8-103(2), MCA. The Court granted Oldhorn time to respond personally to his counsel's motion, but Oldhorn did not file a response within the time allowed.
The Court has now independently examined the record pursuant to Anders. We conclude an appeal in this case would be wholly frivolous.
THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED that counsel's motion to be allowed to withdraw from this appeal is GRANTED and this appeal is DISMISSED.
The Clerk is directed to provide copies of this Order to all counsel of record and to Clifford Dione Oldhorn personally.
