Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-125
Submitted November 19, 2003 – Filed February 26, 2004
Assistant Appellate 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. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Alan Chronister was sentenced to twenty years in prison following his plea to numerous charges. He appeals, arguing his plea was involuntary. Counsel for Chronister attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel. Chronister filed 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 Chronister’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
