Case: 16-20319 Document: 00513920480 Page: 1 Date Filed: 03/21/2017 IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT No. 16-20319 Summary Calendar United States Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit FILED March 21, 2017 Lyle W. Cayce Clerk UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff-Appellee v. JAMONE JONES, Defendant-Appellant Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas USDC No. 4:15-CR-261-3 Before JOLLY, SOUTHWICK, and HIGGINSON, Circuit Judges. PER CURIAM: * The attorney appointed to represent Jamone Jones 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). Jones has filed a response. The record is not sufficiently developed to allow us to make a fair evaluation of Jones’s claims of ineffective assistance of counsel; Pursuant to 5TH CIR. R. 47.5, the court has determined that this opinion should not be published and is not precedent except under the limited circumstances set forth in 5TH CIR. R. 47.5.4. * Case: 16-20319 Document: 00513920480 Page: 2 Date Filed: 03/21/2017 No. 16-20319 we therefore decline to consider the claims without prejudice to collateral review. See United States v. Isgar, 739 F.3d 829, 841 (5th Cir. 2014). We have reviewed counsel’s brief and the relevant portions of the record reflected therein, as well as Jones’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. Jones motion for appointment of counsel is DENIED. 2
