The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Before the Court is a Motion to Withdraw (Doc. 26). Defendant's attorney, Assistant Federal Public Defender Daniel G.

Accordingly, the Court hereby APPOINTS attorney David M. Williams from the Law Office of David M. Williams, Fairfield, Illinois, as CJA counsel, to represent Defendant in this matter. Lastly, the Court hereby finds Defendant's pro se Motion to Withdraw Counsel (Doc. 27) as MOOT.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
