MICHELLE R. FREYTAG,
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Southern District of Texas
USDC No. 4:15-CR-67-1
Before REAVLEY, OWEN, and ELROD, Circuit Judges.
PER CURIAM: *
The attorney appointed to represent Michelle R. Freytag has moved for
leave to withdraw and has filed briefs in accordance with Anders v. California,
386 U.S. 738 (1967), and United States v. Flores, 632 F.3d 229 (5th Cir. 2011).

Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not

collateral review. See United States v. Isgar, 739 F.3d 829, 841 (5th Cir. 2014);
United States v. Corbett, 742 F.2d 173, 177 (5th Cir. 1984) (per curiam).
We have reviewed counsel’s briefs and the relevant portions of the record
reflected therein, as well as Freytag’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, Freytag’s motion for appointment of new
counsel, to strike the briefs, and to remand the case to the district court for
resentencing is DENIED, and the APPEAL IS DISMISSED. See 5TH CIR.
