Appeal From York County
John C. Hayes, III, Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-507
Submitted July 1, 2003 – Filed August 27, 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, Assistant Attorney General David Spencer, of Columbia, Thomas E. Pope, of Rock Hill, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Bobby Patterson was convicted of murder and possession of a firearm/knife during the commission of a violent crime in October of 1990. Patterson was sentenced to life in prison for the murder and five years on the firearm possession conviction. The issue briefed by counsel concerns whether the trial court erred in summarily denying and dismissing Patterson’s subject matter jurisdiction claim in his habeas corpus action. In a pro se brief, Patterson raises the same issue.
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 Patterson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved. 
GOOLSBY, BEATTY and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.
 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.
