Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Taggart, 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 Warren B. Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Appellant pled guilty to two counts of strong arm robbery, forgery, and second degree burglary, and he was sentenced.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Appellant’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved.  Appellant did not file a 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 this appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

GOOLSBY, HOWARD, and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.
