U.S. v. CORONA-ROJAS

No. 16-40224, Summary Calendar.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee, v. JESUS CORONA-ROJAS, Defendant-Appellant.

United States Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit.


Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Marjorie A. Meyers , for Defendant-Appellant.

Renata Ann Gowie , for Plaintiff-Appellee.

Philip G. Gallagher , for Defendant-Appellant.

Carmen Castillo Mitchell , for Plaintiff-Appellee.

Before: REAVLEY, OWEN, and ELROD, Circuit Judges.


PER CURIAM.*

The Federal Public Defender appointed to represent Jesus Corona-Rojas 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). Corona-Rojas has filed a response. The record is not sufficiently developed to allow us to make a fair evaluation of Corona-Rojas's claims of ineffective assistance of counsel; we therefore decline to consider the claims without prejudice to collateral review. See United States v. Isgar, 739 F.3d 829, 841 (5th Cir. 2014).

We have reviewed counsel's brief and the relevant portions of the record reflected therein, as well as Corona-Rojas's response. We concur with counsel's assessment that the appeal presents no nonfrivolous issue for appellate review. Accordingly, the motion for leave to withdraw is GRANTED, counsel is excused from further responsibilities herein, and the APPEAL IS DISMISSED. See 5TH CIR. R. 42.2.
