UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. EDWARD VALENTIN, Defendant-Appellant.
Stephen J. Langs, appointed counsel for Edward Valentin in this direct criminal appeal, has moved to withdraw from further representation of the appellant and filed a brief 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 arguable issues of merit, counsel=s motion to withdraw is GRANTED, and Valentin=s conviction and sentence is AFFIRMED.
