State v. Glenn, 221 N.C.App. 143, 726 S.E.2d 185 (Jun. 5, 2012)

The court declined to consider the defendant’s pro se MAR on grounds that he was represented by appellate counsel. It noted that having elected for representation by appointed counsel, the defendant cannot also file motions on his own behalf or attempt to represent himself; a defendant has no right to appear both by himself and by counsel.
