In The Interest of Joshua K., A Juvenile Under The Age of Seventeen,        Appellant.


Appeal From Sumter County
Marion D. Myers, Family Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-512
Submitted October 1, 2004 – Filed October 13, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Tara Taggart, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster,  Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh,  Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Cecil Kelley Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Joshua K, a minor under the age of seventeen, appeals following being adjudicated delinquent to two counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor.  Joshua argues the trial court erred in failing to grant a directed verdict based on insufficient evidence to prove the crimes charged.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Joshua’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved, stating that she has reviewed the record and concluded the appeal lacks merit. 

After a thorough 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.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

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


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