Opinion No. 2004-UP-472

APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Daniel T. Stacey, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Druanne D. White, of Anderson, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Clarence D. Jones was convicted of assault and battery with intent to kill (ABIK) and assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature (ABHAN).  For each charge, he was sentenced to six years, suspended upon the service of three years, plus three years probation, to be served concurrently.  Jones’s appellate counsel filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967).  Counsel additionally submitted a petition to be relieved from representation, asserting there are no directly appealable issues of arguable merit.  Jones filed a pro se response with the Court.

After a review of the record pursuant to Anders and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

GOOLSBY, ANDERSON, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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