Rogelio Lopez-Soto appeals his sentence for his guilty plea conviction to distribution of cocaine and unlawful entry in violation of 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1) and 8 U.S.C. § 1326(b)(1). Lopez's counsel has submitted a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and a motion to withdraw as counsel of record. Because our review of the record pursuant to Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75, 83 (1988), discloses no meritorious issues for review, we AFFIRM the district court's judgment and GRANT the motion of counsel to withdraw.


The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. See Fed. R.App. P. 34(a); 9th Cir. R. 34-4


This disposition is not appropriate for publication and may not be cited to or by the courts of this circuit except as provided by 9th Cir. R. 36-3
