Victor Acosta-Guzman appeals the sentence imposed under the Sentencing Guidelines and his guilty plea conviction for harboring and concealing illegal aliens in violation of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(111). Acota-Guzman's counsel filed a motion to withdraw and a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), which identified no issues for appellate review, and Acosta-Guzman has not filed a supplemental pro se brief.


Our independent review of the record pursuant to Penson v. Ohio, 488 U.S. 75, 83 (1988), discloses that Acota-Guzman's plea agreement waived his constitutional rights including the right to appeal any issue except for "an illegal sentence." There is no indication that his waiver was invalid. The 14 month sentence imposed is consistent with the terms of the plea agreement. Accordingly, counsel's motion to withdraw is GRANTED and this appeal is DISMISSED.


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