Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-412

APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, 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:  Kawanza Laquant Dunham [1] pled guilty to possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute, second offense, and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, second offense.  The circuit court sentenced Dunham to eight years in prison for the crack cocaine charge and 5 years in prison for the marijuana charge, to be served concurrently.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Dunham’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved.  Dunham did 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 Dunham’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [2]

GOOLSBY, HOWARD, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.


[1] Dunham’s name appears on the indictment as Kawanzaa Laquant Dunham.  Dunham spells his name Kawanza Laquanta Dunham on the caption of his pro se brief.

[2] 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.
