UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. James Clifford GOODWIN III, Defendant-Appellant.
Decided: August 10, 2020
Before: SCHROEDER, HAWKINS, and LEE, Circuit Judges.
John Christopher Shirts, USPO - Office of the U.S. Attorney, Pocatello, ID, for Plaintiff - Appellee James Clifford Goodwin, III, Pro Se
James Clifford Goodwin III appeals from the district court's judgment and challenges his guilty-plea conviction and 120-month sentence for possession of sexually explicit images of a minor, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2252(a)(4)(B), (b)(2). Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S.Ct. 1396, 18 L.Ed.2d 493 (1967), Goodwin'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 Goodwin 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, 109 S.Ct. 346, 102 L.Ed.2d 300 (1988), discloses no arguable grounds for relief on direct appeal.
Counsel's motion to withdraw is GRANTED.
