United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Jose v. Maldonado, Defendant-appellant, 990 F.2d 1263 (9th Cir. 1993)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 990 F.2d 1263 (9th Cir. 1993)

Submitted March 23, 1993. *Decided April 7, 1993

Before WALLACE, Chief Judge, and FARRIS and BRUNETTI, Circuit Judges.


Jose Verduzco Maldonado appeals his conviction and 121-month sentence after a guilty plea to distribution of cocaine in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a) (1). Pursuant to Anders v. California, 368 U.S. 738 (1967), Maldonado's counsel filed a brief stating that he found no meritorious issues for review. Counsel also filed a motion to withdraw as counsel of record. Our independent review of the record pursuant to Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75, 83 (1988), discloses no issues for review. Accordingly, we affirm the district court's judgment and grant counsel's motion to withdraw as counsel of record.



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir.R. 34-4
