Decided: August 27, 2018

Before HIGGINBOTHAM, SMITH, and HAYNES, Circuit Judges. Carmen Castillo Mitchell, Assistant U.S. Attorney, U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Texas, Houston, TX, for Plaintiff-Appellee Victor Almanzar-Cardenas, Pro Se

The Federal Public Defender appointed to represent Victor Almanzar-Cardenas has moved for leave to withdraw and has filed a brief per Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S.Ct. 1396, 18 L.Ed.2d 493 (1967), and United States v. Flores, 632 F.3d 229 (5th Cir. 2011). Almanzar-Cardenas has not filed a response.

We have reviewed counsel’s brief and the relevant portions of the record. We agree with counsel’s assessment that the appeal presents no nonfrivolous issue for appellate review. Accordingly, the 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.
