In The Court of Appeals
The State, Respondent,
Maurice Williams, Appellant.
Appeal From Clarendon County
Howard P. King, Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-768
Submitted October 15, 2003 – Filed December 31, 2003
Senior Assistant Appellate Defender Wanda H. Haile, 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; Cecil Kelley Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Maurice Williams appeals his guilty pleas to one count of first-degree burglary and one count of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. Counsel for Williams attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel. Williams 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 the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
HUFF, STILWELL, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.
