Iseli v. State

Supreme Court of Wyoming

January 22, 2014

Michael Dale ISELI, Appellant (Defendant),
v.
The STATE of Wyoming, Appellee (Plaintiff).

ORDER AFFIRMING THE DISTRICT COURT'S JUDGMENT AND SENTENCE.

MARILYN S. KITE, Chief Justice

[¶ 1] This matter came before the Court upon " Appellant[']s Brief/Motion to Appoint Counsel," filed pro se herein January 7, 2014. Pursuant to a plea agreement, Appellant pled " no contest" to three felonies: one count of kidnapping and two counts of first degree sexual assault. This is Appellant's direct appeal from the resulting convictions. On October 30, 2013, Appellant's court-appointed appellate counsel filed a " Motion to Withdraw as Counsel," pursuant to Anders v.

This Court finds that Appellant has not provided any precedent or cogent argument to establish that this appeal has merit. Instead, Appellant, for the most part, repeats potential issues that were thoroughly discussed in appellate counsel's Anders brief. Finally, this Court finds that Appellant's motion to appoint counsel should be denied, inasmuch as Appellant was already provided appellate counsel, who was allowed to withdraw pursuant to this Court's Anders brief procedure. It is, therefore,

[¶ 2] ORDERED that Appellant's Motion to Appoint Counsel, filed herein January 7, 2014, be, and the same hereby is, denied; and it is further

[¶ 3] ORDERED that the district court's June 28, 2013, " Judgment and Sentence" be, and the ...
