APPEAL FROM THE LINCOLN
COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT
HON. ROBERT WYATT, JR.,
AFFIRMED; MOTION TO
Appellant Floyd Edwards appeals from a jury verdict of the Lincoln County Circuit
Court finding him guilty of second-degree battery and fleeing. He was sentenced to seventy-
two months’ imprisonment in the Arkansas Department of Correction. Pursuant to Anders
v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and Rule 4-3(j) of the Arkansas Rules of the Supreme
Court and Court of Appeals, Edwards’s counsel filed a motion to withdraw on grounds that

From our review of the record and the brief presented to us, we find that there is
compliance with Rule 4-3(j) and hold that the appeal is without merit. Accordingly, the jury
verdict is affirmed and counsel’s motion to withdraw is granted.
Affirmed; motion to Withdraw as Counsel granted.
GLOVER and MARSHALL, JJ., agree.
