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 Jones=s conviction and sentence are AFFIRMED. Jones’s motion for appointment of new counsel is DENIED. 2
