United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Carmelo Velle-sanchez, Defendant-appellant, 131 F.3d 150 (9th Cir. 1997)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 131 F.3d 150 (9th Cir. 1997)

Ninth Circuit.Nov. 20, 1997. Submitted November 17, 1997**

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Central District of California

Before: HUG, Chief Judge, PREGERSON AND BEEZER, Circuit Judges.


Carmelo Valle-Sanchez appeals his guilty plea conviction and sentence for illegal reentry of a deported alien following a felony conviction in violation of 8 U.S.C. § 1326(a). Valle-Sanchez's counsel has submitted a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and a motion to withdraw as counsel of record. Because our review of the record pursuant to Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75, 83 (1988), discloses no meritorious issues for review, we AFFIRM the district court's judgment and GRANT the motion of counsel to withdraw.


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