APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Dan T. Stacey, 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 Harold W. Gowdy, III of Spartanburg, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Lonnie Geter was convicted of burglary in the first degree, robbery and assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature (ABHAN).  The circuit court sentenced him to life in prison for burglary, 15 years imprisonment for common law robbery, and ten years imprisonment for ABHAN.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Geter’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved.  Geter 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 Geter’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

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


[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.
