Appeal From Aiken County
 James C. Williams, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-293
Submitted February 23, 2004 – Filed May 5, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Senior Assistant Appellate Defender Wanda P. Hagler, of the Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Deputy Director for Legal Services Teresa A. Knox, Legal Counsel Tommy Evans Jr. and Legal Counsel J. Benjamin Aplin, all of Columbia, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Appellant pled guilty to breaking into a motor vehicle and was sentenced to two years in prison.  After admitting to a probation violation on a prior offense, two years of Appellant’s probationary sentence were also revoked.  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.
