Senior Assistant Appellate Defender Wanda P. Hagler, 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 Respondents.

PER CURIAM:  Clarence D. Sanders was convicted as a habitual traffic offender and sentenced to five-years imprisonment, suspended upon the service of five-years probation.  As a result of a probation violation and revocation hearing, Sanders’ probation was revoked in full, and he was ordered to serve five-years imprisonment.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Sanders’ counsel attached a petition to be relieved as counsel.  Sanders filed a pro se response.

After review of the record 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 dismiss Fortune’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.


GOOLSBY, HOWARD, and KITTRIDGE, JJ., concurring.

[1] Because oral argument would not aid the Court in resolving any issue on appeal, we decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215 and 220(b)(2), SCACR.
