In The Court of Appeals
The State, Respondent,
Earlon M. Gerald, Appellant.
Appeal From Marion County
B. Hicks Harwell, Jr., Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-698
Submitted September 17, 2003 – Filed December 2, 2003
Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant.
Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia, and Edgar Lewis Clements, III, of Florence, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Earlon M. Gerald appeals his guilty pleas to possession of crack cocaine and distribution of crack cocaine. Counsel for Gerald attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel. Gerald 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 Gerald’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
HUFF, STILWELL, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.
