United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit

July 20, 2021

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas USDC No. 7:20-CR-1778-1

Before Smith, Stewart, and Graves, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM. [*]

The Federal Public Defender appointed to represent Lorenzo Pineda-Higuera has moved for leave to withdraw and has filed a brief in accordance with Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and United States v. Flores, 632 F.3d 229 (5th Cir. 2011). Pineda-Higuera has not filed a response. We have reviewed counsel's brief and the relevant portions of the record reflected therein. We concur with counsel's assessment that the appeal presents no nonfrivolous issue for appellate review. Accordingly, counsel's motion for leave to withdraw is GRANTED, counsel is excused from further responsibilities herein, and the APPEAL IS DISMISSED. See 5th Cir. R. 42.2.


Notes:

[*] Pursuant to 5th Circuit Rule 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5th Circuit Rule 47.5.4.
