Terry Gorgio Leach, Appellant.
Appeal From York County
John C. Hayes, III, Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-126
Submitted November 19, 2003 – Filed February 26, 2004
Chief Attorney Daniel T. Stacey, 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 Thomas E. Pope, Solicitor's of York, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Terry Leach appeals the sentence of fifteen to twenty-three years he received after pleading guilty to charges of conspiracy, trafficking crack cocaine, and possession with intent to distribute within the proximity of a park or a school. Counsel for Leach attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel. Leach 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 Leach’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
Huff, Stilwell, and Beatty, JJ. concur.
