Elizabeth R. Francisco, Sinnreich Francisco, Macon, GA, for Defendants-Appellant.
Dean S. Daskal, U.S. Attorney's Office, Columbus, GA, for Plaintiff-Appellee.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia. D.C. Docket No. 04-00001-CR-7-HL.
Before ANDERSON, HULL and PRYOR, Circuit Judges.
Elizabeth R. Francisco, appointed counsel for John Pettiford, has filed a motion to withdraw on appeal supported by a brief prepared pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S.Ct. 1396, 18 L.Ed.2d 493 (1967). Our independent review of the entire record reveals that counsel's assessment of the relative merit of the appeal is correct. Because independent examination of the entire record reveals no issues of arguable merit, counsel's motion to withdraw is GRANTED and Pettiford's conviction and sentence are AFFIRMED.
