 John C. Few, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-452
Submitted July 7, 2004 – Filed August 25, 2004 


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Taggart, Office of Appellate Defense, 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 Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Robert Lynn Darnell appeals his conviction of first-degree burglary.  Darnell argues there was insufficient evidence of guilt of first-degree burglary.  Darnell’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved, stating she had reviewed the record and concluded the appeal lacks merit.  Darnell did not file a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s brief 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 [1] Darnell’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., HUFF and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.                              


[1] We decide this case without oral arguments pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
