DECISION & ORDER
Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Kings County (Walsh, J.), rendered September 25, 2012, convicting him of attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance 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 U.S. 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 U.S. 738), and, upon an independent review of the record, we conclude that there are no nonfrivolous issues which could be raised on appeal. Counsel's application for leave to withdraw as counsel is, therefore, granted (see Anders v California, 386 U.S. 738; Matter of Giovanni S. [Jasmin A.], 89 A.D.3d 252; People v Paige, 54 A.D.2d 631; cf. People v Gonzalez, 47 N.Y.2d 606).
RIVERA, J.P., DICKERSON, COHEN and HINDS-RADIX, JJ., concur.
