Counsel appointed by this court to represent the appellant have presented for our consideration, by brief and oral argument, the only issues fairly raised by the record. Having examined these issues, we find them without sufficient merit to warrant reversal. Assigned counsel's effort, however, in presenting the issues available, and thus insuring an appeal for an indigent defendant, is in the best tradition of the bar.
