Bobby Weatherford, Appellant.
Appeal From Marion County
John L. Breeden, Jr., Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-049
Submitted November 20, 2002 – Filed January 16, 2003
Senior Assistant Appellate Defender Wanda H. Haile, of Columbia; for Appellant.
Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster; Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh; Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia, Edgar Lewis Clements, III, of Florence; for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Bobby Weatherford appeals the trial court’s ruling that his minor victim was competent to testify. Counsel for Weatherford attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel. Weatherford did not file 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 Weatherford’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
CONNOR, STILWELL, and HOWARD, JJ., concur.
