IN THE ARIZONA COURT OF APPEALS DIVISION TWO THE STATE OF ARIZONA, Appellee, v. JULIA KORINKO-LOVETT, Appellant. No. 2 CA-CR 2023-0078 Filed November 22, 2023 THIS DECISION DOES NOT CREATE LEGAL PRECEDENT AND MAY NOT BE CITED EXCEPT AS AUTHORIZED BY APPLICABLE RULES. NOT FOR PUBLICATION See Ariz. R. Sup. Ct. 111(c)(1); Ariz. R. Crim. P. 31.19(e). Appeal from the Superior Court in Graham County No. CR202200336 The Honorable Michael D. Peterson, Judge AFFIRMED COUNSEL E.M. Hale Law, Lakeside By Elizabeth M. Hale Counsel for Appellant STATE v. KORINKO-LOVETT Decision of the Court MEMORANDUM DECISION Judge O’Neil authored the decision of the Court, in which Vice Chief Judge Staring and Judge Sklar concurred. O’ N E I L, Judge: ¶1 After a jury trial, appellant Julia Korinko-Lovett was convicted of aggravated assault. The trial court sentenced her to an enhanced, slightly mitigated prison term of two years. ¶2 On appeal, counsel has filed a brief in compliance with Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Leon, 104 Ariz. 297 (1969), asserting she “has reviewed the entire record and has been unable to find any meritorious issue to raise.” Consistent with State v. Clark, 196 Ariz. 530, ¶ 30 (App. 1999), counsel has provided “a detailed factual and procedural history of the case, with citations to the record,” and has asked this court to search the record for reversible error. Korinko-Lovett has not filed a supplemental brief. ¶3 Viewed in the light most favorable to affirming the jury’s verdict, see State v. Holle, 240 Ariz. 300, ¶ 2 (2016), the evidence is sufficient here, see A.R.S. §§ 13-1203(A), 13-1204(A)(10). In June 2022, Korinko-Lovett, who was then an inmate at the Graham County Jail, punched uniformed jail guard T.B. over a dozen times, resulting in an abrasion on T.B.’s neck. ¶4 The record also supports the trial court’s finding that Korinko-Lovett had one historical prior felony conviction. See A.R.S. § 13-105(22). The sentence imposed is within the statutory range. See A.R.S. §§ 13-703(B), (I), 13-1204(F). ¶5 Pursuant to our obligation under Anders, we have searched the record for reversible error and have found none. See State v. Fuller, 143 Ariz. 571, 575 (1985). Accordingly, we affirm Korinko-Lovett’s conviction and sentence. 2
