UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. Roam Savage CHANDLER, Defendant-Appellant.
Roam Savage Chandler appeals from the district court's judgment and challenges his guilty-plea convictions and aggregate 120-month sentence for sex trafficking of a minor and use of an interstate facility in aid of racketeering, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1591(a)(1), (b)(2), and 1952(a)(3), respectively. Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S.Ct. 1396, 18 L.Ed.2d 493 (1967), Chandler'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 Chandler the opportunity to file a pro se supplemental brief. No pro se supplemental brief or answering brief has been filed.
Chandler waived his right to appeal his conviction and sentence. 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 issue as to the validity of the waiver. See United States v. Watson, 582 F.3d 974, 986-88 (9th Cir. 2009). We accordingly dismiss the appeal. See id. at 988.
Counsel's motion to withdraw is GRANTED.
