Attorney(s) appearing for the Case
Anita L. Burns , for Defendant-Appellant.
Jeffrey Q. McCarther , for Plaintiff-Appellee.
Before WOLLMAN, COLLOTON, and GRUENDER, Circuit Judges.
Dewuan C. Williams directly appeals the sentence he received after pleading guilty to a felon-in-possession offense. His counsel has filed a brief under Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), in which she argues that Williams's sentence is unreasonable and requests leave to withdraw.
Upon careful review, we conclude that the district court1 did not impose an unreasonable sentence. See United States v. Feemster, 572 F.3d 455, 461-62 (8th Cir. 2009) (en banc) (explaining that sentences are reviewed under deferential abuse-of-discretion standard and discussing substantive reasonableness). In addition, having independently reviewed the record pursuant to Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75 (1988), we find no nonfrivolous issues for appeal. Accordingly, we grant counsel leave to withdraw, and we affirm Williams's sentence.
