Motion for Rule on the Clerk; granted.
Alvin Q. Malone, for appellant.
Per Curiam. Appellant, Jason B. Rogers, by his attorney, Alvin Q. Malone, has filed a motion for rule on the clerk. His attorney admits that the record was tendered late due to a mistake on his part.
We find that such error, admittedly made by the attorney for a criminal defendant, is good cause to grant the motion. See Terry v. State, 272 Ark. 243, 613 S.W.2d 90 (1981); In Re: Belated Appeals in Criminal Cases, 265 Ark. 964 (1979) (per curiam).
