PER CURIAM: John Thompson was convicted of distribution of heroin, sentenced to eighteen-years imprisonment, and fined $50,000. Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Thompson’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved as counsel. Thompson 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.
APPEAL DISMISSED. 
GOOLSBY, HOWARD, and KITTRIDGE, JJ., concurring.
 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.
