Docket No. 1:05-cr-00380-RWS-ECS-2 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee, versus ISRAEL PINEDA, a.k.a. Becerro, a.k.a. Borrego, Defendant-Appellant. ________________________ Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia ________________________ (December 24, 2014) Before JORDAN, JILL PRYOR and BLACK, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: Case: 14-10419 Date Filed: 12/24/2014 Page: 2 of 2 Mary Erickson, appointed counsel for Israel Pineda in this direct criminal appeal, has moved to withdraw from further representation of the appellant 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 entire 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 Pineda’s convictions and sentences are AFFIRMED. However, we sua sponte REMAND for the limited purpose of correcting a scrivener’s error in Count 2 of the written judgment. The statute of conviction should read 18 U.S.C. § 1956(a)(2)(A), (h), rather than solely 18 U.S.C. § 1956(a)(2)(A). 2
