APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Daniel T. Stacey, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry D. McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Edgar L. Clements, of Florence, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Appellant pled guilty to homicide by child abuse and was sentenced to twenty years in prison.  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.   


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
