Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, 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; John Gregory Hembree, of Conway; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:† Jihad Nicklson appeals his guilty plea to two counts of second-degree burglary.† Counsel for Nicklson attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.† Nicklson 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 Nicklsonís appeal and grant counselís petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

CONNOR, STILWELL, and HOWARD, JJ., concur.
