Case Name:  Glenn v. State of Wyoming      

Citation:  2011 WY 135

Docket Number: S-11-0132


Order Affirming the Judgment and Sentence of the District Court

Date of Order: September 21, 2011

Facts:  Appellant pled “no contest” to three charges:  (1) criminal entry, a misdemeanor; (2) possession of marijuana, a third offense felony; and (3) felony interference with a peace officer.  The district court imposed concurrent sentences of 2 to 4 years on the felonies, with those sentences to be served concurrently to the misdemeanor sentence.  This is Appellant’s direct appeal from those convictions.  Appellant’s court-appointed appellate counsel filed a “Motion to Withdraw as Counsel.”  Following a careful review of the record and the “Anders brief” submitted by counsel, this Court entered its “Order Granting Permission for Court Appointed Counsel to Withdraw.”  That Order notified Appellant that the District Court’s “Judgment and Sentence” would be affirmed unless, on or before September 12, 2011, Appellant filed a brief that persuaded the Court that the captioned appeal was not wholly frivolous. 

Holdings:  Because Appellant had not filed a brief or other pleading within the time allotted, the Court found that the district court’s “Judgment and Sentence” should be affirmed. 

C.J. Kite delivered the opinion for the court.
