THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA
In The Court of Appeals

The State,        Respondent,

v.

Richard Ellisor        Appellant.


Appeal From Lexington County
James R. Barber, III, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-026
Submitted November 19, 2003 – Filed January 16, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellant Defender Robert M. Pachak, 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 Donald V. Meyers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Richard Ellisor was indicted of and subsequently pled guilty to committing or attempting a lewd act upon a child under the age of 16.  Ellisor’s appellate counsel submitted a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating he has reviewed the record and has concluded Ellisor’s appeal is without merit.  Ellisor 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 Ellisor’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

STILWELL, BEATTY, and CURETON, JJ., concur.


[1]   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.
