United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Raul Fonseca Duran, Defendant-appellant, 131 F.3d 149 (9th Cir. 1997)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 131 F.3d 149 (9th Cir. 1997) Submitted Nov. 17, 1997. **Decided Nov. 20, 1997

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Central District of California, No. CR-93-01082-Kn-1; David V. Kenyon, District Judge, Presiding.

Before HUG, Chief Judge, PREGERSON and BEEZER, Circuit Judges.


Raul Fonseca Duran appeals his guilty plea conviction and the eighteen month sentence imposed for possession of goods stolen from an interstate shipment in violation of 18 U.S.C § 659. His attorney has filed a brief stating that she finds no issues for review and a motion to withdraw as counsel of record pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967). Our examination of counsel's brief and our independent review of the record under Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75, 83 (1988), disclose no issues for review.

Accordingly, we grant counsel's motion to withdraw and affirm the district court's judgment.



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