PATRICK KOCH, APPELLANT
Appeal From the Judgment of Sentence in The Court of Common Pleas of Lycoming County, Criminal No. 85-10, 199.
This is an appeal form the judgment of sentence entered by the Court of Common Pleas of Lycoming County. Counsel for appellant has requested that we grant him permission to withdraw from this case. As counsel has failed to satisfy the minimum requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), we deny his request to withdraw, and direct his attention to Commonwealth v. Green, Pa. Super. , 513 A.2d 1008 (1986), and Commonwealth v. Thomas, Pa. Super. , 511 A.2d 200 (1986). Within thirty (30) days of the date of this order, counsel is directed to either file a brief that comports with the requirements of Anders as defined by the Courts of this Commonwealth, or to file an advocate's brief. The Commonwealth shall file its responsive brief twenty (20) days thereafter. Jurisdiction of this panel is relinquished. Jurisdiction of the Superior Court is retained. Case to be reassigned by the Prothonotary's Office to another panel.
