Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, 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 J. Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Jim D. Conyers pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter and assault and battery with intent to kill and was sentenced to seventeen years imprisonment for voluntary manslaughter and fifteen years imprisonment for assault and battery with intent to kill, the sentences to run concurrently.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Conyers’ counsel attached a petition to be relieved.  Conyers did not file 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 Conyers’ appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

GOOLSBY, HOWARD, and KITTREDGE, 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.
