APPEAL DISMISSED


Senior Assistant Appellate Defender Wanda P. Hagler, of Columbia; for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster; Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh; Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Thomas E. Pope, of York; for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Ann Thorpe pled guilty to resisting arrest and the circuit court imposed a fine of $500.00.  Additionally, the circuit court sentenced her to one-year imprisonment, provided that on payment of $250.00, the balance of her sentence would be suspended, with probation for two years, the supervision taking place in Virginia.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Thorpe’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved.  Thorpe 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 Thorpe’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

[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.
