Felty v. State (Majority)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Defendant was convicted of first-degree felony murder. Defendant was sentenced to life in prison without parole. On appeal, Defendant’s counsel filed a no-merit brief asserting that there were no nonfrivolous arguments to be made on appeal and a motion to withdraw. The Supreme Court affirmed the conviction and granted counsel’s motion to withdraw, holding that none of the adverse rulings against Defendant provided meritorious grounds for reversal and that there were no other nonfrivolous arguments for an appeal.
