Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Arizona D.C. No. 2:16-cr-00315-DLR-1 Douglas L. Rayes, District Judge, Presiding

Before: HUG, FARRIS, and CANBY, Circuit Judges.

MEMORANDUM [*]

Rodolfo Lopez Soto appeals from the district court's judgment and challenges his 37-month sentence for re-entry of a removed alien, in violation of 8 U.S.C. § 1326. Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Soto's counsel has filed a brief stating that there are no grounds for relief, along with a motion to withdraw as counsel of record.
