United States Court of Appeals, Eleventh Circuit.

UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Cesar Nahum MONTUFAR, Defendant-Appellant.

No. 17-15091

Decided: July 23, 2018

Before MARCUS, ROSENBAUM and HULL, Circuit Judges. Aileen Cannon, Emily M. Smachetti, U.S. Attorney Service—Southern District of Florida, U.S. Attorney Service—SFL, Miami, FL, for Plaintiff-Appellee Michael Caruso, Federal Public Defender, Federal Public Defender's Office, Miami, FL, for Defendant-Appellant Cesar Nahum Montufar, Pro Se

Ayana Harris, appointed counsel for Cesar Nahum Montufar in this appeal from the denial of a motion for a sentence reduction under 18 U.S.C. § 3582(c)(2), 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 the denial of Montufar’s requested relief under § 3582(c)(2) is AFFIRMED.
