Appeal From Horry County
Reginald I. Lloyd, Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No.
Submitted June 1, 2005 – Filed June 27, 2005
Acting Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda H. Carter, of Columbia, for Appellant.
Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor John Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Herman Geathers appeals his conviction and life sentence for second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor. Counsel for Geathers attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel. Geathers filed a separate pro se response.
After a review of the record as required by Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we hold there are no directly appealable issues that are arguable on their merits. Accordingly, we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
ANDERSON, STILWELL, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.
