Appeal from the United States District Court
for the District of Arizona
Timothy M. Burgess, District Judge, Presiding
Before: SILVERMAN, BEA, and NGUYEN, Circuit Judges.
Elbis Saul Martinez-Escalon appeals from the district court's judgment and challenges his guilty-plea conviction and 51-month sentence for reentry after deportation, in violation of 8 U.S.C. § 1326. Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Martinez-Escalon's counsel has filed a brief stating that there are no grounds for relief, along with a motion to withdraw as counsel of record. We have provided Martinez-Escalon 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.
