Antoine Green, appeals his convictions and sentences for
aggravated rape and aggravated burglary. For the reasons that
follow, we affirm defendant's convictions and sentences
and grant appellate counsel's motion to withdraw as
counsel of record for defendant.
January 14, 2016, a Jefferson Parish Grand Jury returned A
True Bill indicting defendant, Antoine Green, for aggravated
rape of a juvenile in violation of La. R.S. 14:42 (Count 1),
and aggravated burglary in violation of La. 14:60 (Count 2).
Defendant pled not guilty to both charges on January 26,
2016. On August 24, 2016, following a competency hearing,
defendant was found competent to stand trial. On March 7,
2017, the State amended Count 1 of the True Bill to forcible
rape. On that same date, defendant pled guilty to both counts
of the amended True Bill and was sentenced to 20 years at
hard labor for each count, with the sentences to run
concurrently. On December 20, 2017, defendant was granted an
defendant's conviction was the result of a guilty plea,
the facts underlying the crime of conviction are not fully
developed in the record. However, at the time of
defendant's guilty plea and sentence, the State provided
the following factual basis:
Your Honor, if the State of Louisiana were to proceed to
trial against Antoine Green, the State would prove, beyond a
reasonable doubt, that on or about July 10th of 2015, within
the Parish of Jefferson, the Defendant violated Louisiana
Revised Statute 14:42.1 and that he did commit Forcible Rape,
now known as Second Degree Rape, upon a known juvenile, the
date of birth of 8-12 of '99. If the State of Louisiana
were to proceed to trial in Count 2, the State would prove
beyond a reasonable doubt, that on July 10th of 2015, within
the Parish of Jefferson, the Defendant Antoine Green also
violated Louisiana Revised Statue 14:60, and that he did
commit Aggravated Burglary of a Residence, located at 88
Clifford Court in Waggaman, belonging to a known juvenile,
date of birth 8-12 of '99.
the procedure adopted by this Court in State v.
Bradford, 95-929, pp. 3-4 (La.App. 5 Cir. 6/25/96), 676
So.2d 1108, 1110-11,  appointed appellate counsel has filed a
brief asserting that she has thoroughly reviewed the trial
court record and cannot find any non-frivolous issues to
raise on appeal. Accordingly, pursuant to Anders v.
California, supra, and State v. Jyles,
