The State,        Respondent,


W. T. Prince,        Appellant.

Appeal From Florence County
B. Hicks Harwell, Jr., Circuit Court Judge

Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-070
Submitted November 19, 2003 – Filed February 11, 2004


Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Taggart, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Deputy Director For Legal Services Teresa A. Knox, Legal Counsel Tommy Evans, Jr., Legal Counsel J. Benjamin Aplin, S.C. Dept. of Probation, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Prince pled guilty to use of a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent.  He was sentenced to three years imprisonment, suspended upon service of fifty-nine days and two years probation, with credit given for time served.  Prince also pled guilty to malicious injury to personal property less than $1000 and received thirty days with credit for time served.  W. T. Prince appeals the revocation of his probation.  His counsel attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel stating she had reviewed the record and concluded the appeal lacked merit.  Prince did not file a pro se response.

We dismiss pursuant to 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 Prince’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.


HUFF, STILWELL, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.
