In The Court of Appeals
The State, Respondent,
Gloria Jenkins, Appellant.
Appeal From Beaufort County
Jackson V. Gregory, Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-742
Submitted October 10, 2003 – Filed December 17, 2003
Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, Office of Appellate Defense, 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 Randolph Murdaugh, III, of Hampton, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Gloria Jenkins appeals from a negotiated plea, arguing that the trial judge should have ordered a mental examination for Jenkins before accepting the plea since Jenkins was taking medication at the time. Counsel for Jenkins attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.
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 Dye’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
HUFF, STILWELL, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.
