Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Central District of California
S. James Otero, District Judge, Presiding
Before: CANBY, TROTT, and W. FLETCHER, Circuit Judges.
Leo Rickey Evans appeals from his guilty-plea conviction and 192-month sentence for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations conspiracy, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1962(d); and conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute at least five grams of cocaine base, in violation of 21 U.S.C. §§ 841(a), (b)(1)(A), and 846. Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Evans's counsel has filed a brief stating there are no grounds for relief, along with a motion to withdraw as counsel of record. We have provided Evans with the opportunity to file a pro se supplemental brief. No pro se supplemental brief or answering brief has been filed.
Our independent review of the record pursuant to Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75, 80 (1988), discloses no arguable grounds for relief on direct appeal.
Counsel's motion to withdraw is GRANTED.
