MEMORANDUM DECISION

SAMUEL A. THUMMA JUDGE

¶1 This is an appeal under Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and Maricopa Cnty. Juv. Action No. JV-117258, 163 Ariz. 484, 788 P.2d 1235 (App. 1989). Counsel for juvenile Tyohn H. has advised the court that, after searching the entire record, counsel has found no arguable question of law and asks this court to conduct an Anders review of the record. Finding no reversible error, Tyohn's adjudication and resulting delinquency are affirmed.

FACTS[1] AND PROCEDURAL HISTORY

¶2 In May 2013 Tyohn was walking with his friend, another juvenile, when he crossed paths with the victims, F.Z. and V.E., also juveniles. Tyohn said to F.Z. "give me your [watch]" several times. When F.Z. did not comply, Tyohn swung his fist at F.Z. and a fight resulted in which Tyohn and his friend beat up F.Z. F.Z. maintained that he did not provoke the fight or strike back during the fight but rather shielded himself with his arms. An unidentified man driving by stopped and broke up the fight. The fight resumed a short time later and was witnessed by police who then broke up the fight. During the fight, Tyohn hit both F.Z. and V.E.

¶3 Tyohn was charged with aggravated attempted robbery of F.Z., a class 4 felony, and assault of V.E., a class 3 misdemeanor. At his adjudication, Tyohn testified that he did not intend to strike V.E. but hit her by accident when she got too close to the fight. Both F.Z. and Tyohn claimed they were the owner of the watch, with Tyohn asserting F.Z. had stolen the watch earlier and Tyohn was attempting to retrieve it.

¶4 The superior court found Tyohn delinquent of the aggravated attempted robbery of F.Z. but not delinquent of the assault on V.E. At his disposition, the superior court continued Tyohn on juvenile intensive probation. This court has jurisdiction over Tyohn's timely appeal from his delinquency pursuant to Article 6, Section 9, of the Arizona Constitution and Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) section 8-235(A) (2013).

DISCUSSION

¶5 Counsel for Tyohn advised this court that after a diligent search of the entire record, counsel found no arguable questions of law. This court reviews Tyohn's adjudication and resulting delinquency for reversible error. See Maricopa Cnty. Juv. Action No. JV-117258, 163 Ariz. at 485-86, 788 P.2d at 1236-37.

¶6 The record shows Tyohn was represented by counsel and counsel was present at all critical stages. The evidence presented at the adjudication was substantial and supports the delinquency finding. From the record, all proceedings were conducted in compliance with the Arizona Rules of Juvenile Court Procedure. The disposition imposed was within statutory limits. The only issue Tyohn's counsel raised is whether the superior court erred in ...
