Appeal From Spartanburg County
J. Derham Cole, Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-700
Submitted September 17, 2003 – Filed December 3, 2003
Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Taggart; of Columbia, for Appellant.
Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh; Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, of Columbia; Harold W. Gowdy, III of Spartanburg, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: David Solomon Jackson was indicted and subsequently convicted for armed robbery. After a bench trial, Jackson was sentenced to ten years imprisonment. Jackson appeals his conviction asserting the trial improperly admitted his written statement in violation of Jackson v. Denno, 378 U.S. 368, 84 S.Ct. 1774 (1967).
Jackson’s appellate counsel submitted a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating she has reviewed the record and has concluded Jackson’s appeal is without merit. Jackson did not file a pro se brief with the court.
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 Jackson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved. 
HUFF, STILWELL and BEATTY, 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.
