SHAWN SCOTT, also known as “Shizzle”, Defendant-Appellant Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana USDC No. 2:13-CR-227-3 Before REAVLEY, OWEN, and ELROD, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: * The attorney appointed to represent Shawn Scott has moved for leave to withdraw and has filed a brief in accordance with Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and United States v. Flores, 632 F.3d 229 (5th Cir. 2011). Scott has filed a response. He requests substitution of new counsel for his appointed attorney. That motion is DENIED as untimely. See United States v. Wagner, 158 F.3d 901, 902-03 (5th Cir. 1998). Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR. R. 47.5.4. * Case: 16-30304 Document: 00513798737 Page: 2 Date Filed: 12/15/2016 No. 16-30304 We have reviewed counsel’s brief and the relevant portions of the record reflected therein, as well as Scott’s response.
