Appeal From York County
Lee S. Alford, Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-478
Submitted September 15, 2004 – Filed September 16, 2004
Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant.
Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General JohnW. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Thomas E. Pope, of York, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Appellant was convicted of possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of crack cocaine within proximity of a public school, and unlawful child neglect, and he was sentenced. The issue briefed by appellate counsel concerns the trial court’s denial of Appellant’s motion for directed verdict. Appellant’s counsel has petitioned to be relieved as counsel, stating that he has reviewed the record and has concluded the appeal is without merit. Appellant has filed a pro se brief, which we have considered.
After a review of the record as required by Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we hold there are no directly appealable issues that are arguable on their merits. Accordingly, we dismiss this appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved. 
HEARN, C.J., HUFF, and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
