In the Interest of: David W.S.,
A Minor under the age of Seventeen,        Appellant.


Appeal From Cherokee County
Wesley L. Brown, Family Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-235
Submitted January 29, 2004 – Filed March 31, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  The family court conducted a hearing upon a juvenile petition that charged David W.S., a minor under the age of seventeen, with petty larceny and three counts of grand larceny.  The family court adjudicated David delinquent and committed him to the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice for an indefinite period not to exceed his twenty-first birthday.  David appeals, contending the family court erred in denying his motion for directed verdicts.  His counsel attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating she had reviewed the record and concluded David’s appeal was without merit.  David has not filed a pro se brief.

After a thorough review of the record on appeal 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 grant counsel’s petition and dismiss the appeal. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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