PER CURIAM: Case: 15-14202 Date Filed: 05/31/2016 Page: 2 of 2 Meghan Ann Collins appointed counsel for Billie Rufrano 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.
