Nino, Defendant-Appellant. ________________________ Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia ________________________ (November 12, 2014) Before WILLIAM PRYOR, MARTIN and ANDERSON, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: Case: 13-14527 Date Filed: 11/12/2014 Page: 2 of 2 David H. Jones, appointed counsel for Ruffino Torres-Pineda in this direct criminal appeal, has moved to withdraw from further representation of Torres-Pineda and filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 87 S.Ct. 1396, 18 L.Ed.2d 493 (1967). Our independent review of the record reveals that counsel’s assessment of the relative merit of the appeal is correct. Because independent examination of the entire record reveals no arguable issues of merit, counsel’s motion to withdraw is GRANTED and Torres-Pineda’s convictions and sentences are AFFIRMED. 2
