In The Court of Appeals
The State, Respondent,
Wayne McKnight, Appellant.
Appeal From Florence County
James E. Brogdon, Jr., Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-581
Submitted July 15, 2003 – Filed October 2, 2003
Chief Attorney Daniel T. Stacey, 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; and Solicitor Edgar Lewis Clements, III, of Florence, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Wayne McKnight was convicted of second degree burglary and sentenced to fifteen years imprisonment. He appeals.
Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), counsel for McKnight attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating he had reviewed the record and concluded McKnight’s appeal is without legal merit sufficient to warrant a new trial. McKnight did not file a separate pro se response.
After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Anders and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
HEARN, C.J., CONNOR and ANDERSON, JJ., concur.
