Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-225
Submitted January 29, 2004 – Filed March 30, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, 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 W. Townes Jones, IV, of Greenwood, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Charles pled guilty to one count of simple assault and battery, one count of disturbing schools, one count of hindering an officer, and two counts of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.  Subsequently, the family court committed him to the Department of Juvenile Justice for an indeterminate period of time.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Charles’ counsel attached a petition to be relieved.  Charles 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 Charles’ 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.
