May 30, 1979
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, APPELLEE,
SANTOS SANTIAGO-VELEZ, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
Present: HONORABLE HENRY J. FRIENDLY, HONORABLE LEONARD P. MOORE, HONORABLE WILFRED FEINBERG, Circuit Judges.
This cause came on to be heard on the transcript of record from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, and was submitted by counsel.
ON CONSIDERATION WHEREOF, it is now hereby ordered, adjudged, and decreed that the judgment of said District Court be and it hereby is AFFIRMED, and appellant's counsel's motion to be relieved as counsel is granted.
Santos Santiago-Velez appeals from a judgment of conviction of violating the narcotics laws and conspiring to do so. The convictions of two of appellant's coconspirators named in the indictment were affirmed by this court in memorandum orders dated March 20, 1979.
Counsel for appellant has submitted a brief pursant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967). We have reviewed the record and have concluded that there are no non-frivolous issues that could be raised on appeal. The record demonstrates that the evidence is sufficient to support the conviction and that appellant suffered no prejudice from, and the district judge did not abuse his discretion in allowing, continuation of the trial until 10:00 p.m. in the evening on one occasion over the objection of appellant's trial attorney.
