UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee v. DAMACIO VELEZ-VILLANUEVA, Defendant-Appellant


Conference Calendar Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas
USDC No. 1:17-CR-823-5 Before REAVLEY, OWEN, and GRAVES, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM:

Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR. R. 47.5.4. --------

The Federal Public Defender appointed to represent Damacio Velez-Villanueva 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). Velez-Villanueva 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.
