APPEAL DISMISSED


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

Deputy Director for Legal Services Teresa A. Knox, Legal Counsel Tommy Evans, Jr., Legal Counsel J. Benjamin Aplin, S.C. Dept. of Probation, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  James David Trotter was convicted of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and sentenced to five years imprisonment, suspended on the service of five years probation.  As a result of a probation violation and revocation hearing, Trotter’s probation was revoked in full, and he was ordered to serve five years imprisonment.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Trotter’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved as counsel.  Trotter 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 Trotter’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]
