NOT TO BE PUBLISHED IN THE OFFICIAL REPORTS

California Rules of Court, rule 8.1115(a), prohibits courts and parties from citing or relying on opinions not certified for publication or ordered published, except as specified by rule 8.1115(b). This opinion has not been certified for publication or ordered published for purposes of rule 8.1115. (Super. Ct. No. 2016043168)
(Ventura County)

A jury found Alvaro Morales guilty of possession of a firearm by a felon (Pen. Code, § 29800, subd. (a)(1)), possession of a firearm by a violent felon (§ 29900, subd. (a)(1)), possession of a short-barreled shotgun (§ 33210), and carrying a concealed firearm (§ 25400, subd. (a)(2)). The trial court sentenced him to seven years in state prison.

All further statutory references are to the Penal Code. --------

In December 2016, an Oxnard police officer saw Morales take a sawed-off shotgun out of his pants and place it under a car parked in the driveway of his mother's house. Police entered the house, took Morales into custody, and retrieved the shotgun.

We appointed counsel to represent Morales in this appeal. After counsel examined the record, he filed an opening brief that raises no arguable issues. On August 27, 2018, we advised Morales by mail that he had 30 days within which to submit any contentions or issues he wished us to consider. We have not received a response.

We have reviewed the entire record and are satisfied that Morales's attorney fully complied with his responsibilities and that no arguable issue exists. (People v. Wende (1979) 25 Cal.3d 436, 441.)

The judgment is affirmed.
