for the Southern District of Texas
USDC No. 4:13-CR-303-1

PER CURIAM: *
The attorney appointed to represent Dang Hai Nguyen 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).

collateral review. See United States v. Isgar, 739 F.3d 829, 841 (5th Cir. 2014).
The motion for appointment of substitute counsel is DENIED as untimely. See
United States v. Wagner, 158 F.3d 901, 902-03 (5th Cir. 1998).
We have reviewed counsel’s brief and the relevant portions of the record
reflected therein, as well as Nguyen’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.
