In The Court of Appeals

The State,        Respondent,


Levardis Holiday,        Appellant.

Appeal From Laurens County
James W. Johnson, Jr., Circuit Court Judge

Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-229
Submitted January 29, 2003 - March 26, 2003 


Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, of Laurens; for Appellant.

Legal Counsel Tommy Evans, Jr.; Legal Counsel J. Benjamin Aplin; Deputy Director for Legal Services Teresa A. Knox, of Columbia; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Levardis Holiday appeals the revocation of six months of his probation.  Holiday’s appellate counsel has petitioned to be relieved as counsel, stating he has reviewed the record and has concluded Holiday’s appeal is without merit.  The issue briefed by counsel concerns whether the trial court judge abused his discretion in revoking Holiday’s probation.  Holiday has not filed any materials on his own behalf.

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 Holiday’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

HEARN, C.J., and GOOLSBY and SHULER, JJ., concur.

[1]   Because oral argument would not aid the court in resolving the issues on appeal, we decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rules 215 and 220(b)(2), SCACR.
