Dear Mr. Butler: Defendant's counsel filed an amended "Anders brief" and motion to withdraw on March 27, 199 2, which appear to be in substantial compliance with the requirements of Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and Dunn v. Cook, 791 P.2d 873 (Utah 1990) . It does not appear to the State that there is any reason why counsel's request to withdraw should not be granted and defendant's conviction affirmed. See State v. Gabaldon, 735 P.2d 410 (Utah App. 1987). Therefore, the State withdraws its previous motion to strike counsel's original "Anders" brief and requests that the Court accept this letter in lieu of a responsive brief, and that the matter be submitted to the Court for decision.
