Docket No. 8:14−cr−00102−MSS−AAS−1 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee, versus LONZINE ADAMS, Defendant-Appellant. ________________________ Appeal from the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida ________________________ (April 10, 2018) Before TJOFLAT, NEWSOM and HULL, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: Thomas Burns, appointed counsel for Lonzine Adams in this direct criminal appeal, has moved to withdraw from further representation of the appellant and Case: 17-11686 Date Filed: 04/10/2018 Page: 2 of 2 filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967). 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 Adams’s convictions and sentences are AFFIRMED. Accordingly, we DENY Adams’s motion for the appointment of new counsel as moot. 2
